Temporary Emergency Surcharge Adjustment

  • Dear Valued Customer,

                  COVID-19 has had significant impacts on the global aviation resources which have affected our overall operation cost. In order for us to continue provide high quality delivery service to all customers, SF Express US and Canada will be implementing a Temporary Emergency Surcharge (TES) starting from 12th May 2022.

                  The TES will be adjusted according to different time periods. The fee adjustment will reflect market changes, emergency deployment of capacity resources, and restrictions on operations due to epidemic prevention measures in different countries and regions. We will pay close attention to market situation and make adjustment on the surcharge in a timely manner in response to the latest market conditions.
