Preparing your business for 2021

Brexit update

The Brexit Transition period has now ended and the United Kingdom and European Union have negotiated a Trade and Co-operation Agreement which came into effect on January 1st, 2021. We are currently evaluating the details of the Agreement but there are additional requirements you should be aware of when shipping between the UK and EU.


Please see our 2021 toolkit at where we will also provide details on any future changes you may need to make.

TNT is making incremental investments to adjust our systems, processes, resourcing, and customer facing solutions to ensure we are ready for the changes from Jan 1, 2021. To reflect these investments and the incremental cost of clearing shipments, beginning Jan 1, 2021 we will be applying a surcharge of
53.50 SEK on all shipments moving from UK to EU, and EU to UK*.


All other applicable surcharges related to moving shipments across borders will apply and will be based on the customer’s instructions to TNT related to the clearance of the shipment. 

*It is not expected that this will apply to shipments between Ireland and Northern Ireland.
