Sending & receiving items worldwide
There are always shipments that require a little more attention, whether than be extra documentation or special handling of some type. That’s why TNT offers a range of Additional Services to support you in these instances to ensure your shipment reaches its destination on time and in perfect condition. These services and their costs are detailed below.
Also detailed below are the costs of Surcharges that will be applied to your shipments. Surcharges differ to Additional Services in that they are costs that we incur on all shipments that are variable and out of control.
Shipments that exceed our standard dimensions, or otherwise cannot be handled by our automated conveyor belts, will incur one of the following surcharges*:
*NOTE: TNT will always only apply one Additional Handling surcharge per shipment. The surcharge will be applied based on below hierarchy:
1) Exceeding dimensions
3) AHS Packaging
4) AHS Weight
For shipments that require extra time, effort or paperwork
€5.00/day up to 30Kg
€15.00/day up to 125Kg
€50.00/day for shipments > 125Kg
For consignments that pose a risk to our staff or other shipments.
Mandatory charges that cover variable costs outside of our control, such as fuel fluctuations or security measures.
