Nisa is to increase its fuel levy delivery charge yet again, from £9.77 to £13.43.

In a message sent to the symbol group’s retailers, and seen by betterRetailing, the firm said the increase will come into effect on 11 July. It said: “Although the cost of fuel is now so much higher, we have been absorbing the incremental costs in what was left of the last quarter as we agreed to only review the levy on a quarterly basis.

“However, following the quarterly review of the fuel levy we can now confirm that we will have to raise the fuel levy amount to £13.43 per delivery to cover the increased incremental cost of fuel we’re experiencing, and this will be effective from week commencing 11 July.”

Nisa had previously faced criticism from retailers for increasing the charge from £4.88 to £9.77 two months after its introduction. The wholesaler had previously not ruled out further increases due to inflationary pressures. Booker also notably introduced delivery charges for retailers this year.

Nisa has been approached by betterRetailing for comment.
