Peak Surcharge

Due to disruptions in the global supply chain in the wake of the COVID-19 crisis, we announced a surcharge on all TNT international parcel and freight shipments beginning April 6, 2020.

Air cargo capacity remains limited, and we are incurring incremental costs as we continue to adjust our international networks to best deliver much-needed goods and services in this constrained environment.

Beginning December 28, 2020, the surcharge amount for some FedEx Express and TNT international parcel and freight shipments originating from MEISA (UAE, India, Oman, Bahrain, Kuwait, South Africa, Namibia, Swaziland, Zambia, Botswana, Malawi, Kenya, Egypt*, Jordan*) and Europe destined for the U.S. and Canada will decrease from $0.55/kg to $0.22/kg.

The Peak Surcharge rate per kg will be applied as shown below:
