AHS Packaging (AHP) (expected to take effect as of January 2023)€40.00This applies if an item: 
- is not fully encased in an outer shipping container;
- is encased in an outer shipping container; not made of corrugated fiberboard (cardboard) materials, including but not limited to metal, wood, canvas, leather, plastic (hard and soft), or expanded polystyrene foam (e.g., Styrofoam);

- is round or cylindrical, including (without limitation) mailing tubes, cans, buckets, barrels, tires, drums or pails;
- is bound with metal, plastic or cloth banding, or has wheels (e.g. a bicycle), casters, handles, or straps (including packages where the outer surface area is loosely wrapped, or where the contents protrude outside the surface area);
- could become entangled in or cause damage to other packages or the TNT sortation system

We reserve the right to assess additional handling charges for packages that require special handling or that require TNT to apply additional packaging during transit
AHS Weight (AHW) (expected to take effect as of January 2023)€20.00This applies if an item has an actual weight greater than 31kg and it is not on a standard pallet.  

*NOTE: TNT will always only apply one Additional Handling surcharge per shipment. The surcharge will be applied based on below hierarchy:

1) Exceeding dimensions

2) Non-conveyable 

3) AHS Packaging

4) AHS Weight 

Non-stackable (SNS)€150.00This surcharge applies to any freight shipment containing at least one piece, skid or pallet that is non-stackable. Non-stackable means that a piece, skid or pallet cannot be stacked vertically in a safe and secure manner. This surcharge applies once per shipment, even if multiple pieces identified as non-stackable are bundled in a shipment. A shipment can attract both one Additional Handling surcharge and the Non-stackable surcharge. (Note: The billed surcharge does not represent a bookable service and does not contain any guarantee to the extent that the respective shipments may not possibly be stacked at one point during transport.) -
