Why is FedEx instituting a peak surcharge increase during a global health crisis?

The restrictions issued by various governments to contain the spread of COVID-19 are disrupting the global supply chain. Air cargo capacity is limited, and we’ve had to make adjustments so that our international networks can best deliver much-needed goods and services in this constrained environment.

How long will the surcharge remain in effect?

Until further notice. Market conditions are shifting rapidly because of COVID-19 and we will evaluate this surcharge on an ongoing basis.
