On this episode of Let’s Talk Ship:

UPS® vs. FedEx® – How to Compare the Carriers’ 2022 GRIs and Improve Your Parcel Operation.

It was already a historic year for fees and surcharges from UPS® and FedEx®, and both carriers’ recent 2022 GRI announcements continued that trend with huge 5.9% average increases across services. With those rate hikes about to go into effect, now is the time for companies to make sure they understand what’s about to happen to their small parcel costs. HINT: It’s not going to be pretty for shippers who are not prepared!

There is hope, however. Join us on the next episode of Let’s Talk Ship when Jamie Vogel, EVP of Sales and Marketing, and Brian Byrd, EVP of Operations, will break down both carriers’ GRI so you’ll know just how much your parcel costs will be affected. With this insight and some advice from our experts, you’ll be in a position to better understand, budget for, and mitigate the full impact of the GRIs. Shippers have two choices. One option is to accept the 5.9% (or more) cost increase and do nothing to prevent it. The other is to watch this episode and get actionable advice that will help save money in 2022. What’ll you decide?


Join Jamie and Brian on Thursday, December  16, 1:00pm – 1:30pm EST.
