Inflation and rising energy prices: Swiss Post to adjust parcel prices for major customers from 2023
Rising energy and fuel prices as well as general inflation are leading to much higher costs in parcel logistics. Swiss Post is likely to incur additional costs of around 30 to 40 million francs in the parcel business for 2022. Swiss Post will bear these additional costs for 2022. From 2023, however, moderate price adjustments are unavoidable in order to pass on some of the costs. Swiss Post will be introducing a variable energy surcharge and an inflation surcharge for parcels from 2023. This will affect some 3,500 business customers who have individually agreed prices. Business customers who have list prices and private customers will not be affected. The inflation surcharge will be 1.9 percent of the parcel price. The energy surcharge is variable and is based on the average monthly prices for diesel, petrol and electricity.
