2013 Rate Updates
FedEx and UPS to Raise Small Package Rates again 2013
Starting in January 2013, the cost to ship an overnight envelope with Memphis-based FedEx Express will increase by a net average of 3.9%. The full average rate increase of 5.9% will be partially offset by adjusting the fuel price threshold at which the fuel surcharge begins, reducing the fuel surcharge by 2%. Air packages shipped with Atlanta-based UPS will increase by a net average 4.5% beginning December 31, 2012. The rate increase for UPS air and international shipments is based on a 6.5% increase in the base rate, less a 2% reduction to the index-based air and international fuel surcharge.
Also effective January 2013, the cost to ship with FedEx Ground will increase by a net average 4.9%. The full average rate increase of 5.9% will be partially offset by adjusting the fuel price threshold at which the fuel surcharge begins, reducing the fuel surcharge by 1%. UPS ground shipping will also increase by a net average 4.9% for U.S. domestic services, achieved through a 5.9% increase in the base rate, less a 1% reduction to the index-based ground fuel surcharge.
Additionally, UPS Next Day Air Freight, UPS 2nd Day Air Freight, and UPS 3 Day Freight rates for shipments within and between the U.S., Canada, and Puerto Rico will increase 4.9%. Select accessorial fees will increase as well.
