Unichem introduces fuel surcharge

30th September 2008

Unichem has announced the introduction of a fuel surcharge as a result of rising energy prices.

From September 8th 2008, the company has levied a charge of 14 pounds per month for the delivery of products to its first and second-line pharmacy and dispensing doctor customers based in the UK.

The company said it has attempted to inform all its clients of this change and urged those with any queries to contact their local account manager directly.

John Geddes, director of sales at the firm, said: “Along with other logistics companies, UniChem has been closely evaluating the impact that the significantly increased price of fuel is having on our business.”

He added the firm has made every possible effort to not pass on this cost to customers, but has been forced to do so following extensive consideration of all options available to the business.

Mr Geddes said the company remains dedicated to delivering the highest levels of service to clients in a difficult economic climate.

In June 2008, chairman of UniChem Mike Smith called for action – rather than rhetoric – on the issue of healthcare reform in the UK.
