Iron Mountain applies a monthly adjusted fuel surcharge to customer invoices. Adjustments to the fuel surcharge are effective from the first of each month and updated on this web page approximately two weeks prior to the effective date.
The fuel surcharge is indexed to the consumer price in Euros of diesel fuel inclusive of duties and taxes. Within Europe this is measured by the European Commission Directorate General for Energy and Transport and published in the Oil Bulletin which can be accessed here

What you will see on your bill
We adjust fuel surcharges monthly—up or down—as fuel prices change. Changes are applied at the end of each month and are reflected on the invoice as a separate line item.
Assume that your contracted trip charge is €35.00 and the monthly average diesel per litre price is €1.50. Your fuel surcharges rate would be 12.63%. In euro terms, that would be €35 per trip X 12.63% = €39.42 per trip surcharge.
If the monthly average Diesel price decreased to €1.20/litre for a measurement month, the surcharge would decrease to 7.00%. In euro terms, that would be €35 per trip X 7.00% = €37.45 per trip surcharge.
Conversely, if the monthly average Diesel price increased to €2.00.00/litre for a measurement month, the surcharge would increase to 21.63%. In euro terms, that would be €35 per trip X 21.63% = €42.57 per trip surcharge.
