Updated Manual Air Waybill Surcharge (Effective July 6, 2020)

As part of the integration of FedEx Express and TNT, we are taking the opportunity to align our fees and surcharges for manual air waybills and non-electronic consignments.

Customers who opt for manual air waybills will be charged AUD20 per piece with a minimum order quantity of 1 piece. The launch of the manual air waybill surcharge will also be a part of our digital initiative going forward.

The surcharge will be billed on a separate invoice to you.
