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

TNT applies an index-based fuel surcharge to all shipments. 
 

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.

 

TNT reserves the right to assess fuel and other surcharges on shipments without notice. The amount and duration of any such surcharges will be determined at our sole discretion. By tendering your shipments to TNT, you agree to pay the surcharges, as determined by TNT.

Peak Surcharge (March 23 – April 5, 2020)

Temporary Surcharge renamed as "Peak Surcharge" effective 2 November 2020

COVID-19 has disrupted supply chains, reducing air cargo capacity globally. 

This disruption has caused us to have to make adjustments to our networks which has increased our costs.  As a result, we announced a “Temporary Surcharge” on all FedEx Express and TNT international parcel and freight shipments beginning 6 April.

Beginning 2 November 2020, the “Temporary Surcharge” will be renamed as "Peak Surcharge."

Peak Surcharge adjustment on outbound shipments from Mainland China

We announced a peak surcharge on all TNT international shipments beginning April 6.

We implemented this surcharge due to the various COVID-19 containment restrictions issued in countries around the world. Those restrictions continue to disrupt the global supply chain. As a result, air cargo capacity is limited, and we are incurring incremental costs as we adjust our international networks to best deliver much-needed goods and services in this constrained environment.

 

From November 30 to December 27, the surcharge amount for some TNT international shipments originating in China will increase. Updated amounts can be found below.
