There are always shipments that require a little more attention, whether it's extra documentation or special handling. That’s why TNT offers a range of Additional Services to support you and to ensure your shipment reaches its destination on time and in perfect condition.
There are also Surcharges that will be applied to your shipments. Surcharges differ to Additional Services in that they are costs incurred on all shipments that are variable and out of our control.

On 15 December 2004, the German Government confirmed that with effect from 1 January 2005, all vehicles in excess of 12 tonnes, travelling along certain routes throughout Germany, would be subject to an additional tax related to kilometres travelled.
As a result of this, shipments collected from 14 February 2005 and sent via our Economy Express service either to or transhipped through Germany will attract a £0.02 per kilo supplement. This will affect shipments to and from the following countries:
Austria, Czech Republic, Hungary, Norway, Serbia, Switzerland, Bosnia & Herzegovina, Denmark, Iceland, Poland, Slovakia, Turkey, Bulgaria, Finland, Latvia, Romania, Slovenia, Croatia, Germany, Lithuania, Russia, Sweden
