Historical International Peak Surcharges

Historical International Peak Surcharges

Peak surcharges and fees for international services

We announced a surcharge on all FedEx Express® and TNT international parcel and freight shipments beginning April 6, 2020.

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.

For more information on the FedEx response to COVID-19, click here.

Beginning Sept. 13, 2021, the Peak Surcharge amount will increase for some FedEx Express international parcel and freight shipments originating in China; Hong Kong SAR, China; Japan; Korea and Macau SAR, China and destined to the U.S., Canada, and certain LAC countries.

Beginning Sept. 20, 2021, the Peak Surcharge amount will increase for certain countries in LAC destined to countries around the world.
