Surcharges

Understanding your invoice

Surcharges are additional charges that are mandatory and applicable to your TNT shipments.

When shipping consignments with TNT, the following surcharges apply: 

 

Fuel surcharge

TNT applies an index-based fuel surcharge to all shipments.
 

Out-of-area surcharge

We provide collection and delivery services virtually anywhere you require. For certain remote and less-accessible locations an additional out-of-area surcharge is applied to cover additional costs incurred.

 


TNT reserves the right to assess fuel and other surcharges on shipments without notice. The amount and duration of any such surcharges will be determined at our sole discretion. By tendering your shipments to TNT, you agree to pay the surcharges, as determined by TNT.

Demand Surcharge (South Korea)


Beginning September 4, 2023, the "Peak surcharge" will be renamed as "Demand surcharge".
 

The applicability, duration, and amount of the Demand Surcharge is determined for each region based on regular assessments of shipping volume and available capacity within our network and other considerations.
