Peak Surcharge

We announced a surcharge on our international parcel and freight shipments beginning April 6, 2020, due to the various COVID-19 containment restrictions issued in countries around the world.

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.

While Peak Surcharge evolves over time based on several factors such as pressure on network capacity, demand, and operating costs, we remain committed to provide you only the best possible service.

Effective March 7, 2022, we are implementing the following peak surcharge changes:

  • For shipments from China and APAC* to Europe, an increased surcharge from €1.10 to €1.30 per kilo begins March 7, 2022.
  • For shipments from Europe to the US/Canada, China, APAC, and Rest of the World, an increased surcharge from €0.20 to €0.30 per kilo begins March 7, 2022.

The Peak Surcharge will be reflected on your invoice.
