Both the nature of the shipment and/or the place of origin or destination may attract certain surcharges. For example, deliveries to regional or regional outlying areas carry a surcharge; as do tender documents.

Standard surcharges

There is a fuel levy, which is applicable to local and national services. This surcharge is standard throughout the industry, and was introduced at a time when domestic fuel prices experienced extreme fluctuations. To safeguard against similar extreme courier rates fluctuations which could negatively affect your day to day business operations, a fuel levy was introduced to act as a cost stabilizer. Although fluctuations in the fuel price are not always that extreme, the levy still acts as a stabilizer to allow for annual rates increases.

Currency surcharge (Applicable to international shipments only).

Surcharges are based on the volatility of the rand against the US Dollar.

Security surcharge (Applicable to national and international services)

Couriers have been operating in accordance with Part 108 of the Airline Security Regulations act since mid-2009. It involves a screening and handling process that all cargo must undergo with every airline before the transportation of these goods can take place. Implementing and maintaining these additional security measures has resulted in huge financial injections in the courier and freight industries globally. A security surcharge was introduced to offset these costs. D2D has absorbed this cost.

Non-Standard surcharges

After hours collection will result in appropriate surcharges. This includes weekdays from 5pm to 11pm and on weekends after 12pm.

A surcharge automatically applies to all deliveries to chain stores, mines, power stations, plots and farms; resorts, game reserves and National Parks; as well as rural areas and townships.

High risk areas

Certain high-risk areas, where crime and vehicle hi-jacking are a frequent occurrence, will result in a surcharge.

Volumetric vs. actual weight

With the transportation of goods, you usually pay for the space you use, meaning that courier shipments are charged either on volumetric weight or actual weight, both calculated in kilograms.

Actual weight is calculated by simply weighing the parcel, while volumetric weight involves measuring the parcel in centimetres, and then multiplying the three dimensions (width x height x length), and then dividing by the conversion factor applicable to the service.

PLEASE NOTE: The conversion factor differentiation is as follows:

  • Volumetric conversion factor for road-freight: 4 000
  • Volumetric conversion factor for air-freight: 5 000


Insurance of the goods is the responsibility of the sender or consignor. This cover is not automatically applied, and is only provided on a request. Please refer to our standard terms and conditions for full details on exclusions and stipulations.


It is the client’s responsibility to ensure goods are sufficiently packaged. We will supply flyers for documents etc up to 2 kgs for domestic delivery. Our international courier partner has a few standard size boxes for international use only, at no additional cost. Enquire here with our ops team.
