Understanding your shipping data is important this holiday season

Peak Season is approaching. FedEx/UPS and other carriers will be implementing higher surcharges this holiday season. The pandemic continues to change transportation all over the world.

October 3, 2021 through January 15, 2022, UPS will apply additional peak surcharges to shipments that qualify as oversized, unauthorized, or require additional handling, in addition to existing charges. FedEx peak surcharges will also increase due to holiday season shipping. Since we are entering another holiday peak season, FedEx expects extended high demand for capacity and increased operating expenses along with rises in volume to transfer over into 2022. These adjustments are significant and will undoubtedly impact all shippers. Both carriers have 5.9% General Rate Increases (GRI) this year.

It’s important to understand your shipping data and spend to determine areas of savings for your business or ways to utilize different services. We review your data with you to help you understand all aspects of your shipping.
