It's that time of year once again. UPS & FedEx are dishing out another costly general price increase to small parcel shippers effective December 29, 2019 for UPS and January 6, 2020 for FedEx.
It is important to understand that the announced UPS & FedEx rate increases are only averages and the impact on your company could vary greatly.
Over the past decade (2010-2020), UPS and FedEx ground tariff rates have increased 75.8% while air tariff rates have increased 80.0%. As usual, these numbers do not take into account the accessorial increases or the impact of the size-to-weight related charge changes both carriers continue to make.
