Cold Weather Changes and Charges

There are no tags 0 comments

The cold weather and holiday shipping season are upon us and so, too, are the annual rate hikes for some accessorial and packaging fees. During FedEx Parcel’s peak holiday shipping period, shippers can expect additional handling surcharges of $3.20/package, unauthorized package charges of $150/package, and oversize charges of $27.50/package. While UPS will be charging a residential peak surcharge of $0.28/package for ground shipments, large packages will be subject to a surcharge of $26.20/package and over maximum limits packages will be subject to a surcharge of $165/package. Shippers should also look out for freeze protect fees. Carriers typically offer freeze protect service between October and April.
