Beginning Nov. 2, 2020

We announced a surcharge on all FedEx Express® and TNT international parcel and freight shipments beginning April 6.

We implemented this surcharge due to the various COVID-19 containment restrictions issued in countries around the world. Those restrictions are disrupting the global supply chain. As a result, air cargo capacity is limited, and we are incurring incremental costs as we adjust our international networks to best deliver much-needed goods and services in this constrained environment.

This surcharge does not apply to domestic shipments.

Beginning Nov. 2, the name of the surcharge will change from Temporary Surcharge to Peak Surcharge.​

Updated Aug. 18, 2020

As the impact of COVID-19 continues to generate a surge in residential deliveries, we are entering this holiday peak season with extremely high demand for capacity and are experiencing increased operating costs across our network. We anticipate residential volume to continue to surge into the new year.

To continue providing our customers with the best possible service during this challenging time, we are implementing several surcharges and fees. The surcharges implemented on June 8, 2020, have an updated effective period, which now includes an expiration date.
