**UPDATE 04-06-21** TIL have removed this surcharge.

TIL have implemented a cost recovery surcharge for certain routes in response to the Canterbury flooding and its impact on freight movement.

Please see TIL's explanation and information below:

Although the TIL Freight Team are now utilising an alternative route to get South from Christchurch. This alternative route adds 60km onto our journey and approximately two hours due to the current speed restrictions in place.

Due to this alternative route having to be utilised to move south, we have had to implement a cost recovery on this route. Please see below.

PLEASE NOTE: These surcharges will not be included in the price displayed on the system. Any applicable Canterbury surcharges will be applied to your invoice as a chargeback.
