Invoices & Surcharge

Understanding your invoice

Surcharges are additional charges that are mandatory and applicable to your TNT shipments.

When shipping consignments with TNT, the following surcharges apply:

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. Click here for precise details of the applicable fuel surcharge in your region.

Out-of-area surcharge

We provide collection and delivery services virtually anywhere you require. For certain remote and less-accessible locations an additional out-of-area surcharge is applied to cover additional costs incurred.

Enhanced security surcharge

TNT has implemented additional procedures, activities and investments to safeguard our customers' shipments whilst in our custody. To partially offset the additional costs an Enhanced Security Surcharge is applied to all shipments.

The surcharge will be levied on all international Express, Economy Express and Special Express shipments at the rate of €0.05 per kilo*, subject to a minimum of €0.50 and maximum €10.00 per shipment.

For airfreight shipments, a surcharge is levied at the rate of €0.09 per kilo*. The minimum surcharge is based on a weight of 100kg. There is no maximum charged weight.

*TNT uses a volumetric conversion factor to calculate whether a shipment will be charged according to its statistical weight or volumetric weight - whichever is greater.
