Fuel Surcharges in America (Ex. United States)

Fuel Surcharges for Canada

Please note: beginning January 1, 2013, TNT Canada fuel index will be linked to TNT Americas (ex USA). Please review the index below.

These rates apply to invoices issued in all American countries, except the United States. Other rates apply in all other countries.

US Gulf Coast Jet Fuel

The index-based fuel surcharge for countries in America (except United States) is based on the US Gulf Coast jet fuel spot price. It will be subject to monthly adjustments based on a rounded average of the spot price for a gallon of jet kerosene, as published by the US Department of Energy at www.eia.doe.gov. To download the latest price table (in PDF format) from their website, click here. An index based on jet kerosene is considered an appropriate method as it closely links the fuel surcharge to the prevailing market price for jet fuel.

Please be aware that there will be a 1-month lag in the application of the fuel surcharge index. For example, the monthly average price for US Gulf Coast jet fuel in April will be published during the second week of May and will be used to determine the applicable fuel surcharge in June.

TNT Express' fuel surcharge will be adjusted monthly in line with the change in USGC kerosene-type jet fuel price according to the following scale:

2nd September - 29th September : 12.0%

Highway Diesel Fuel Prices

The surcharge is based on the rounded National U.S. Average On Highway Diesel Fuel Prices reported by the U.S. Department of Energy for the month that is two months prior to the adjustment. For example the surcharge for February 2012 is based on the December 2011 National U.S. Average On Highway Diesel Fuel Price.  Link to U.S. Department of Energy website.

TNT reserves the right to change the fuel surcharge index and table without notice. Both the amount and duration of the surcharge will be determined at TNT's sole discretion.
