We are announcing price increases as of 1 April 2023

10 March 2023

Danske Fragtmænd has historically adjusted prices on 1 January, but this year we chose to wait with the adjustments as we did not know the outcome of the collective bargaining negotiations.

As the collective bargaining is currently being finalised, an extraordinarily expensive agreement has been reached in the transport sector. As a result of high inflation, the energy crisis and rising prices in society in general, trade unions have negotiated very high pay increases on behalf of employees. At Danske Fragtmænd, we expect the new collective agreement to cost the company and our carriers around DKK 100 million on the bottom line.

Like the rest of society, we are experiencing higher prices from our suppliers. More expensive raw materials and rising inflation are pushing up prices on everything from tyres to lifting equipment, which naturally increases Danske Fragtmænd’s total costs.

Based on the above, we are forced to adjust freight rates by 6% as of 1 April 2023. However, our surcharges remain unchanged.

If you have questions about the above, you are welcome to contact your usual contact person at Danske Fragtmænd.

We look forward to our continued excellent collaboration.

Yours sincerely,

Danske Fragtmænd A/S
