Fuel surcharges

Due to continuing fuel price fluctuations, TNT applies a fuel surcharge to all shipments. This approach provides our customers with a transparent charging mechanism reflecting changes in fuel related costs.

Domestic Fuel Surcharge

The domestic fuel surcharge is a charge applied by TNT which reflects changes in a range of fuel related cost factors. These factors include movements in the price of diesel supplied to TNT, the estimated fuel related costs of TNT's transport suppliers and the jet fuel related charges of TNT's air line haul suppliers.
