There will be a two-week lag in the application of the fuel surcharge index. For example, the surcharge for January 21, 2019, was based on the average spot price reported for January 11. Changes to the fuel surcharge are effective each Monday. Information on the fuel surcharge for each week will be available approximately the Friday before the surcharge is applicable.
There is a lag between the fuel price index and the fuel surcharge. TNT may use a longer lag when the fuel price posted on eia.gov is delayed.
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. If the fuel surcharge rises above the maximum value or drops below minimum value, or there are changes to the trigger points, the above table will be updated.
