related to national and crossborder international courier services
The price of fuel at the pump is volatile, and its evolution directly impacts the operational costs of dynamic industries such as transport and courier.
In Sameday we constantly analyze the evolution of the fuel price and because we want to maintain delivery standards we introduce the dynamic fuel index into the cost structure at the shipment level. This will be reflected in the home delivery and easybox delivery services, which involve transport within our distribution network.
How the fuel index is calculated in Sameday
The fuel index is applied to national and international crossborder courier services at the basic cost of the shipments/parcels (basic cost = weight range cost/cost specific to easybox type (s, m, l), additional kg cost, extra network cost, additional parcel cost).
It is calculated monthly, based on the average price of diesel at the pump, on the first day of the month for the previous month, price obtained by accessing the website https://www.peco-online.ro/index.php.
