Fuel Surcharges in the UK
Your TNT shipments in the UK and Northern Ireland are subject to fuel surcharges.
The Surcharges Explained
TNT aims to keep our prices fair and these fuel supplements will rise, fall or be removed in line with the movements in fuel prices.
The index based fuel-surcharge for UK National shipments is based on the monthly average forecourt price of Diesel, as published by the AA and is inclusive of duties and taxes applicable in the UK. To download the latest monthly data from their website please click here.
Latest Surcharge Level:
25th September 2016 - 29th October 2016 - 5.75%
28th August 2016 - 24th September 2016 - 6.00%
