If you are shipping with TNT for the first time, your parcel needs to be left open for inspection by our driver to ensure the content is acceptable for transport through the TNT network. All parcels may be subject to security screening. This may include the use of x-ray, explosive trace detection and other security screening methods. Please note that any shipment may be opened by government agencies (such as customs, border security, or police) while in the care of TNT. TNT has no control over these requests.

Prices are based on the weight, volume, service and destination of your shipment. Consignments may also attract surcharges for additional services.
We calculate both the actual physical weight and the volumetric weight of your shipment. The higher of the two determines the price. To determine volumetric weight, first calculate the volume of your package and then multiply this figure by the relevant conversion factor. See Calculating Volumetric Weight for details.

The 'INCO' terms, or International Commercial Terms, refer to different conditions under which a shipment is sent to the receiver. They not only govern exactly when the ownership of the goods changes and under what conditions, but who will pay for duties, taxes, transportation costs, etc. They are typically expressed as a three letter acronym based on a short description, such as FOB (Free On Board) and CIF (Cost, Insurance and Freight).
