FedEx will implement the following changes to fees and other surcharges, effective January 4, 2016 unless otherwise noted:

FedEx Express Changes

  • Residential Delivery Surcharge will increase from $2.75 to $3.50 per shipment .
  • A new Additional Handling Surcharge fee for Non-stackable Express Freight Shipments of $185 per shipment will apply. A surcharge will apply to any express freight shipment which includes a piece, skid or pallet that cannot be stacked vertically in a safe and secure manner.
    • A pallet or skid is defined as non-stackable if the customer has designated it as such with a sticker, if it has cones or hats on the top, or if it has an obtuse shape. “Do Not Stack” requests cannot always be accommodated, so all freight shipments should be reinforced for stacking.

FedEx Ground Changes

  • Weekly Service Charge will increase from $6.00 to $7.50 per week per account.
  • Additional Handling Surcharge will increase from $8.50 to $9.50 per package.
  • Address Correction Fee will change from $11.00 to $11.50 per package.
  • Oversize Package Fee will increase from $35.00 to $50.00 per package.
  • Residential Delivery Surcharge will increase from $2.75 to $3.50 per package.
  • Unauthorized Package Fee will change from $50.00 to $110.00 per package.
  • FedEx Ground zoning has been updated for Atlantic Canada and Alberta.
  • A list of origin and destination locations where a remote rural surcharge will apply has been updated.

FedEx Freight Changes

  • Rate change affects the FXF 1000, FXF 501, FXFC 1100 and other related series base rates. The effect of the rate increase will vary for individual shippers and shipments, based on such factors as geography, lane and service.
  • Rate change applies to eligible FedEx Freight shipments within Canada, between the contiguous U.S. and Canada, within the U.S. (including Alaska, Hawaii, Puerto Rico and the U.S. Virgin Islands), between the contiguous U.S. and Mexico and within Mexico. Additional changes will include supplemental and special service fees and absolute minimum charges.
