PyMEx Ship & Save Program Description

The Program offers a percentage off FedEx Express applicable rates on eligible FedEx Express services to eligible FedEx accounts. The specific details regarding pricing and the calculations are as follows:

  1. Eligible accounts will be effectively enrolled into the PyMEx Ship & Save Program within one week of registration to receive FedEx PyMEx Program discounts. During the five weeks following the effective enrollment date, the account will be granted a grace period discount equal to 20 percent.
  2. After the grace period expires, the Program Discount is based upon the monthly average of Customer's gross transportation charges, calculated from the effective date of enrollment. The average will be re-calculated monthly and is used to determine the Program Discount, from the Program Discount Table, for the following month. Customer's pricing, therefore, may vary from month to month depending upon Customer's rolling average. After the first 12 (twelve) months of enrollment in the program, a rolling twelve-month average will be used to calculate the discount for the following month.
  3. Customer's average monthly gross transportation charges calculation will be based upon the applicable gross transportation charges from the FedEx account number enrolled in the program. Gross transportation charges are calculated using base transportation charges only and do not include ancillary fees, surcharges, accessorial charges or other special handling fees and charges.
  4. 4. The monthly gross transportation charges from all eligible FedEx Express shipments billed to Customer's account will be used to calculate the Program Discount. However, the Discount will only apply to the following services: FedEx International Priority® and FedEx International Priority® Freight.
  5. The Discounts apply to list-rate transportation charges only and not to any surcharges, special handling fees, duties, taxes or other additional charges.
  6. For a shipment to count toward a Customer's Program Discount threshold or to receive an applicable Program Discount, the shipment must be billed to a FedEx account number that is eligible for Program Discounts.
  7. Any ancillary fee, surcharge, accessorial charge, or dimensional-weight-factor waivers, current Discount or reductions shall be discontinued.
  8. Discounts will be in the form of a credit on the invoice.
  9. Customer shall not be entitled to invoice adjustments for Program Discounts for use of account numbers or automation devices that are not eligible for Program Discounts.
  10. The terms and conditions of carriage in the applicable FedEx Express Air Waybill, in effect on the day of any shipment, shall apply to any such shipments. If there is a conflict between the FedEx Express Air Waybill and the Program, the FedEx Express Air Waybill will control.
