Surcharges

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. Follow the links for information on our Domestic Fuel Surcharge and International Fuel Surcharge.

Enhanced International Security Surcharge

Following well-publicised incidents involving the transportation of packages containing illegal explosive devices, 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 International Security Surcharge is applied to all international shipments.

Effective January 7 2019, the enhanced International Security Surcharge (ESS) is incorporated into International freight charges on your tariffs.
