​Change in freight rates per January 1, 2019

Unfortunately, transport companies have experienced increased costs in 2018, as is the case with HCS. Therefore, we regret to regulate our freight rates per January 1 2019 on traffic in both Denmark and internationally. The increased costs are due to price increases among subcontractors, largely among shipping companies and, even more, by external hauliers due to the pronounced lack of drivers in general in Europe. In addition, the German road tax increases by 39% per January 1, 2019. If you are a HCS customer, you will receive further information about the changes during December. If you have questions, you are always welcome to contact your regular contact person in HCS.​
