TNT Express is one of the world’s largest and longest established courier companies. We are proud to offer two TNT Express services to destinations across Europe: TNT Express and TNT Economy Express.
Please see the table below for an at-a-glance comparison of the TNT Express Export services we offer:
*Please check TNT’s 'Worldwide Transit Times' tool for country-specific transit times and to check this service is available for your shipment’s place of origin and destination.
"Length plus girth" is calculated as length plus twice the width and twice the height.
For example: for a parcel of dimensions 40 x 30 x 20cm:
40 + (2x30) + (2x20) = 140cm
Your shipment will be charged by either actual weight or volumetric weight – whichever is greater.
Volumetric weight is a value derived from the size rather than the weight of your parcel and may apply if your parcel is particularly large and contains relatively light items.
TNT Express calculates volumetric weight on import services by multiplying the three dimensions of your parcel together and dividing by 5000.
For TNT Economy Express, the 'divisor' in the calculation is 4000.
*Each of these surcharges will apply only once per shipment, not once per item. However, both surcharges may apply within one consignment.
Please note that any surcharges on deliveries to EU countries are subject to VAT.
