DHL Express transports your shipments around the world using DHL cargo aircraft, supported by significant amounts of
commercial air cargo purchased on passenger flights.
You will all have seen in the news or experienced firsthand the dramatic impact the current COVID-19 crisis is having on the global aviation industry,
resulting in significant reductions or complete cancelation of passenger flights in most countries.

The massive reduction in available commercial air cargo capacity and destinations has necessitated a switch to more indirect routings
and the purchase of additional cargo aircraft lift, which is in high demand.
These factors, among others, increase the costs of DHL Express during this period to unsustainable levels.
This Emergency Situation Surcharge will allow DHL Express us to cover part of the operating cost increases and the necessary air network adjustments
during the time of this emergency situation.
