FedEx Outlines Peak Surcharges For Ground, Express That Will Extend Into 2022

FedEx will increase various surcharges for peak season in line with rival UPS, setting up another costly holiday season for companies shipping high volumes with the major parcel carriers. Starting Oct. 4, FedEx will raise its surcharges for packages that require additional handling, are oversized or are unauthorized for its Ground network through Jan. 16, 2022. FedEx will also implement per-package surcharges for Ground Economy shipments, which peak at $3 from Nov. 29 to Dec. 12. Customers shipping more than 25,000 packages on average per week will be charged for residential packages shipped between Nov. 1 and Jan. 16, 2022, based on how many more packages the customer ships compared to volumes they sent in February 2020.
