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. 

 

 

Enhanced security surcharge

TNT has implemented additional procedures, activities and investments to safeguard our customers' shipments whilst in our custody. To partially offset the additional costs an Enhanced Security Surcharge is applied to all shipments.

 

The surcharge will be levied on all international Express and Economy Express shipments at the rate of HKD 0.50 per kg*, subject to a minimum of HKD 5.00 and maximum HKD 107.00 per shipment.

 

*TNT uses a volumetric conversion factor to calculate whether a shipment will be charged according to its statistical weight or volumetric weight - whichever is greater.



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.

 

 

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 (Hong Kong SAR China)

We announced a peak surcharge on all TNT international shipments beginning April 6, 2020.
 

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 September 13, 2021, the surcharge amount for some TNT international shipments will increase. These increases will allow us to continue providing the best possible service during this time. Updated amounts can be found below.
