What a Copy Cat, right? FedEx implements surcharge for holiday season–but not in the way UPS did.
Well it didn’t take long and as we projected, FedEx will also implement a Holiday Season Surcharge to become effective from November 20, 2017 through December 24, 2017. FedEx’ surcharge however is somewhat different than the one UPS announced back in June.
FedEx’ surcharges will apply on the following type shipments.
- Additional Handling – a $3.00 per package surcharge will apply
- Oversize Goods – a $25.00 per package surcharge will apply
- Unauthorized Shipments – a $300.00 per package surcharge will apply
Unlike UPS, FedEx will not assess these peak shipping season surcharges for all shipments during the peak holiday season, but only when the above shipment types apply.
