Covid Surchages

* This is best now configured as a country supplement in the same way a Brexit Surcharge, click here for help doc.

We have been made aware carriers such as DHL and FedEx have brought in a Covid Surcharge for deliveries.

We have implemented so that this can be charged out and accrued as a cost in the system, this should only be used for a temporary tariff changes such as the Covid Surcharge, in other cases your cost and sell tariffs should just be updated.

System fuel surcharge configuration

As the costing is an line costing on the booking how your system fuel surcharge is configured will effect whether a fuel surcharge will be added on this charge.
In the control panel > administration > services you will see the International surcharge base. This sets on what figure fuel is calculated.

Base tariff only means fuel will not be added on any additional costings you may on to the job such as Non Docs, Brexit Surcharge.

Total Retail Price means fuel is added to every additional costing on the job such as Non docs, Brexit Surcharge, DDP Admin etc.
