As of 4 September 2023, Peak Surcharge will be called Demand Surcharge. During times of elevated shipping volumes, heightened demand for capacity, increased operating costs, and other strains on our network, we may assess a Demand Surcharge.
1: The applicability, duration, and amount of the Demand Surcharge is determined for each region based on regular assessments of shipping volume and available capacity within our network and other considerations.
2: Demand Surcharge amounts, associated trigger points, and methods of calculation are subject to change without notice. See the TNT Terms and Conditions of Carriage.
Effective March 7, 2022, we implemented the following Demand Surcharge (formerly known as Peak Surcharge) changes for TNT shipments:

Due to continued disruptions in the global supply chain, air cargo capacity remains limited. We are incurring incremental costs as we continue to adjust our international networks and operate in this constrained environment. This surcharge will allow us to continue providing service as effectively as possible until global market conditions improve.
This surcharge will apply until further notice. We will evaluate this surcharge on an ongoing basis. Market conditions are shifting rapidly due to continued disruptions in the global supply chain. Our priority is to continue providing the best possible service to our customers during this period, and this surcharge allows us to do that.
