Fuel Surcharges for International Freight

International fuel surcharges are variable and subject to rise or fall in line with movements in fuel prices. They are compulsory and applied to all TNT shipments. Increases in fuel costs overall have had a great impact on the entire transport industry which has led to these variable prices.
International air freight fuel surcharge rates are based on the origin and destination country of each shipment. The minimum surcharge is determined by a weight of 100kg.
