Since January 1st, 2005, Germany has introduced a variable Road Pricing Charge for Motorways for Vehicles of 12 tons total weight or higher.
In other neighbouring countries like Switzerland or Czech Republic, variable Road Pricing Charges have been introduced as well.

Despite all efforts to provide highest efficiency in transportation, these additional costs could not be beared within existing tariffs.

On January 1st, 2009, the Austrian Government has increased Road Pricing Charges by 41% for EURO V- and 57% for EURO III-Vehicles.

These road pricing increases have had an effect on the operative cost of transportation within the Transport- and Logistics Sector. Prices have been unanimously increased to reflect this higher cost.

The following Road Pricing charges across Europe charges apply to DHL ECONOMY SELECT Export- and Import shipments:
  • Shipments of up to 31.5 kg: EUR 0.34 per shipment
  • Shipments higher than 31.5 kg: EUR 0.076 per kg of total weight
