Aside from their well-known package shipping solutions, TNT also offers pallet collection and delivery services for transporting large and heavy goods. Discover how to ship a pallet with TNT, and use the pricing tool below to see how much your delivery would cost with Eurosender instead.
Since TNT became a part of FedEx in 2016, they have been progressively merging their shipping services via one single network. In some countries, it may happen that you are only allowed to book a shipment using FedEx, but in others, it may be that TNT’s original services are still available.
Therefore, depending on the country of origin and destination, you may get different services for shipping a pallet with TNT. For this guide, we will focus on pallet collection and delivery services using the TNT logistics network.
TNT offers two main pallet delivery services, which are available worldwide:
up to 7,000 kg
up to 500 kg
As a specialist in express shipments, one of TNT’s main features is their timed delivery services that guarantee the delivery will be concluded within a certain timeframe. Depending on which service you choose for your TNT pallet collection and delivery, you may have different options.
Yes, both the TNT Express and Economy Express pallet shipping services already include online tracking. Once your shipment is collected, you will be able to follow the progress of your TNT pallet delivery using their online system.
For all services mentioned, TNT offers door-to-door pallet collection and deliveries. This means that the clients do not need to worry about picking up their shipment at a depot or warehouse. The pallets will be delivered to the agreed address.
However, the collection of pallets by a TNT truck in residential addresses may be charged additionally since this is often considered an additional service by this specific provider. When placing your order, stay attentive and make sure you clarify whether the pick-up address is a residential location or not to avoid issues when the TNT driver comes to collect the pallet.
TNT allows its customers to ship pallets of different sizes. Most European shippers tend to use the EUR standard pallets, which have 120 x 80 cm bases, but that is not a rule. However, if the size of your pallet surpasses the TNT shipping and handling network limits, your shipment will be tagged as awkward freight, which may come with additional charges. Non-stackable pallets are also subject to additional fees.
