For most residential (B2C) shippers, the cost of using UPS and FedEx over the upcoming holiday season is about to increase thanks to the recently announced Peak Season Surcharges. The amount of the increase, however, depends on the carrier. UPS shippers are again most impacted this year, and we are recommending that many act now to help mitigate potentially significant additional costs.
As with all rate announcements from the carriers, we recommend a detailed review of the impact of the changes on your specific shipping program. The real impact of all peak season surcharges is individual to each company. Contact us via https://transimpact.com/ for a no obligation consultation to help you understand precisely what the changes mean to your shipping costs.
