Accessorial Charge Impact of January's GPI

Every year, UPS and FedEx announce their respective general price increase (GPI). Shippers, both large and small, scramble to determine the effective impact on their freight management as well as their shipping costs. Since the announced increases are only averages, the true impact on any given business can vary greatly. This is where our carrier analysis and transport cost analysis services can prove beneficial to a business.

  • Residential Surcharge
  • Delivery Area Surcharge
  • Address Correction Fees


Changes to the dimensional weight (DIM) factor can also be dramatic. UPS and FedEx both assess a dimensional charge to more packages than ever. These changes should prompt adjustments to a company's freight cost analysis strategy.

Since most businesses charge their customers for shipping or try to work it into the price of the product being sold, it is highly beneficial that every company pre-plans their response to the announced GPI. In short, a carrier analysis is essential.

Best Practice Suggestions

Every business, based on their historical and/or anticipated shipping volume and characteristics, ought to analyze the cost impact of their carrier's GPI before the increase becomes effective. In fact, many businesses find a strategic rate analysis to be invaluable to their bottom line.

If your company's rates, volume, and characteristics are such that a margin of opportunity exists to improve your discounts and incentives, consider taking advantage of our transportation analysis services and initiating negotiations concerning shipping contracts with your carrier before the annual rate increase becomes effective. By using our rate analysis services, a company is taking a proactive approach to keeping shipping costs under control.
