Elevated Risk Surcharges

DHL have introduced Elevated Risk Surcharges on some of the more difficult worldwide destinations that they service.

These are not high volume areas for us but the impact these surcharges have on Norsk as a company mean we need to pass them on, which we have done so at cost.

This will affect shipments on our Integrator Express - USave service, and also Worldwide Express shipments and any other Norsk service where DHL is used as a carrier.

The DHL surcharges are as follows:

The Elevated Risk Surcharge applies when shipping to a destination country where DHL is operating at elevated risk due to continuous state of war, civil unrest, or continuous threats from terrorism, and is surcharged at a rate of £15.

The Restricted Destination Surcharge applies when shipping to a destination country that is subject to trade restrictions imposed by the UN Security Council, and is surcharged at a rate of £22.

The Exporter Validation Surcharge applies when shipping to a destination country or entity that is subject to trade restrictions imposed by national legislation such as the EEAS or OFAC, and is surcharged at a rate of £22.

In some cases two out of three of these surcharges apply on a single destination, causing a compounding effect. For ease of calculation, you can summarise the effect of these surcharges on exports alongside or below on a mobile device.

These charges are effective as of the 1st May 2016.

As with all our services, we have multiple shipping options on each route and if they don't use a DHL service it may be cheaper and as quick to use an alternative option. One of our sales staff will be happy to help on sales@norsk.global.
