2014 Small Package Rate Increases

FedEx and UPS announced their small package rates will once again increase for 2014. The UPS rate increases went into effect on December 30, 2013, while the FedEx rate increases took effect on January 6, 2014. As always, how much more expensive your particular small package shipments will be in 2014 largely depends on many factors, including shipment volumes, sizes, weights, and modes.

Here are some quick facts:

  • FedEx Express package and freight rates will increase an average of 3.9% for U.S., U.S. export and U.S. import services.
  • FedEx Ground and FedEx Home Delivery rates will increase an average of 4.9%.
  • UPS Ground, Air and International rates will increase an average of 4.9%.
