FedEx has announced the following peak season rate changes which will go into effect June 8, 2020.
From the FedEx website:
FedEx is an essential business keeping commerce moving and delivering critical shipments to homes during the COVID-19 crisis.
As the impact of the virus continues to generate a surge in residential deliveries and has also generated a surge in oversize, hard-to-handle packages, we have experienced increased operating costs across our network.
To continue providing FedEx customers with strong levels of service during this time, we are implementing the following temporary peak season surcharges.
||FedEx SmartPost® packages||$0.40 per package||June 8, 2020, until further notice|
|Peak — Oversize Charge
||Oversize U.S. domestic FedEx Express® and FedEx Ground® packages||$30.00 per package||June 8, 2020, until further notice|
|Peak — Residential Delivery Charge
||U.S. domestic residential FedEx Express and FedEx Ground packages||$0.30 per package||June 8, 2020, until further notice|
