Frequently asked questions & answers regarding the international fuel surcharge:

What is the TNT fuel surcharge?
The fuel surcharge is a charge applied by TNT which reflects changes in a range of fuel related cost factors. The fuel surcharge reflects movements in the domestic fuel surcharge and estimated fuel related costs associated with TNT’s international transport suppliers.

These prices can fluctuate enormously over time.

How does the fuel surcharge work?
An international consignment has both a domestic and international component. 

Accordingly, on a monthly basis, TNT applies an international fuel surcharge based on a weighted average of:

  • its Domestic Fuel Surcharge; and
  • estimated fuel related costs associated with TNT’s international transport suppliers against TNT's relevant cost base which is reviewed from time to time.

How often will the TNT international fuel surcharge change?
TNT’s fuel surcharge is updated monthly.

How will customers know the amount of next month's surcharge?
TNT will advise the following month's fuel surcharge on this website.

Why do I (as the customer) have to find out myself via the internet that the fuel surcharge has changed?
The fuel surcharge changes on a monthly basis. 

The revised fuel surcharge is communicated via the internet as it is a quick and readily accessible means of communicating the new surcharge to customers and employees of customers, to enable them to inform themselves about the shipping costs.
