Prices 2019

10 December 2018 | Uncategorized | Transport Vermeulen

Unfortunately, we have no choice but to increase our prices as from January 1st, 2019. Since the prices are determined per client and we have recently been informed of an extreme increase in the German maut, this also means an increase in administration. We try to communicate the new prices to everyone around the New Year. There was no other option then to take these rising costs into account.

What cost are we talking about, exactly?

  • An important increase in the maut prices in Germany. We are expecting a 38% increase.
  • The increase in fuel prices.
  • An operational cost that is further increased due to the fact that our drivers are stuck in traffic more and more often and are confronted with longer waiting times and shorter opening hours at the loading and unloading stations. What's more, the different booking systems can make it difficult to choose the most efficient route.

The foreign drivers' salary costs are also increasing exponentially, meaning our partners are charging this increase. Because we value quality, we refuse to work with fraudulent transportation companies that maintain low prices.

There is a shortage of qualified personnel on an international level. This has caused insufficient loading space at certain times this year. A problem that will be event more prominent in 2019.

During weeks 51 and 52, and during the first week of January, only a limited number of drivers will be on the road. Please do consider the riding restrictions in several countries during the holidays and place your order in time!
