Fuel surcharge


Due to continuing fuel price fluctuations, TNT applies an index-based fuel surcharge to all shipments. This approach provides our customers with a transparent charging mechanism for fuel costs, where the fuel surcharge rises or falls in line with movements in the fuel price.

The index-based fuel surcharge is based on the Dubai Fateh Crude oil spot price. It will be subject to monthly adjustments based on a rounded average of the spot price for a barrel of crude oil, as published by the International Monetary Fund (IMF).

Crude oil is the base product to produce jet fuel and truck diesel and is therefore considered the appropriate index base for both air and road transport.

Effective Fuel Surcharge Rate:

30 October 2016 - 26 November 2016 - 12.75%

25 September - 29 October 2016 - 12.75%

28th August 2016 - 24th September 2016 - 12.75%

31st July 2016 - 27th August 2016 - 13.00%

26th June 2016 - 30th July 2016 - 12.75%

29th May 2016 - 25th June 2016 - 12.25%

1st May 2016 - 28th May 2016 - 11.75%

27th March 2016 - 30th April 2016 - 11.50%

28th February 2016 - 26th March 2016 - 11.25%

31st January 2016 - 27th February 2016 - 11.75%

1st January 2016 - 31st January 2016 - 12.75%

Please be aware that there will be a one month lag in the application of the index. For example, the monthly average price for Dubai Fateh Crude in April will be published during the second week of May and will be used to determine the applicable fuel surcharge in June.


TNT reserves the right to change the fuel surcharge index and table without notice. Both the amount and duration of the surcharge will be determined at TNT' sole discretion. Please check this website regularly for any updates.
