There will be a two-week lag in the application of the fuel surcharge index. For example, the surcharge for January 7, 2019, will be based on the average spot price reported for December 28. Changes to the fuel surcharge are effective each Monday. Information on the fuel surcharge for each week will be available approximately the Friday before the surcharge is applicable.

TNT reserves the right to change the fuel surcharge index and table without notice. Both the amount and duration of the surcharge will be determined at TNT's sole discretion. If the fuel surcharge rises above the maximum value or drops below minimum value, or there are changes to the trigger points, the above table will be updated.
