FedEx shipping rates and rate changes

As the impact of COVID-19 continues to generate a surge in residential deliveries, we are entering this holiday peak season with extremely high demand for capacity and are experiencing increased operating costs across our network. We anticipate residential volume to continue to surge into the new year. ​These surcharges and fees will allow us to continue providing our customers with the best possible service during this challenging time.

For a shipping company, the cost of doing business — fuel prices, the cost of updating or replacing equipment and vehicles, and more — makes it necessary for us to periodically evaluate our shipping rates, surcharges and fees. We make adjustments to enable us to keep investing in our business and ensure that we continue to deliver the shipping solutions and service excellence you have come to expect from FedEx.

FedEx continues to experience strong demand for transportation of larger and heavier packages as well as increased pickup and delivery costs. The changes reflect our commitment to continually invest in our business and responsibly manage capacity through our network to maintain outstanding service for these packages.
