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 $30.00 out-of-area surcharge is applied to cover additional costs incurred.

 

 

Enhanced security surcharge

TNT has implemented additional procedures, activities and investments to safeguard our customers' shipments whilst 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 is applied.

 

Effective October 20 2019, the enhanced International Security Surcharge (ESS) is incorporated into International freight charges on your tariffs.
 

 

Regulatory charges
