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.

Out-of-area surcharge

We provide collection and delivery services virtually anywhere you require. For certain remote and less-accessible locations an additional out-of-area surcharge is applied to cover additional costs incurred.

The Out of Area Surcharge for Canada is currently is $0.40 per 0.5 kg. with a minimum charge of $30.00.

Enhanced security surcharge

TNT has implemented additional procedures, activities and investments to safeguard our customers' shipments while in our custody, following well-publicised incidents involving the international transportation of shipments containing illegal explosive devices. To partially offset the additional costs, an Enhanced Security Surcharge will be applied from 1 January 2011, onward.

In Canada, an ESS of $0.07/kg will be applied to all shipments transported internationally. The ESS has a minimum charge of $0.70 and maximum charge of $14.00 per consignment.
