FedEx Shipping Rates and Rate Changes

FedEx continues to experience strong demand for transportation of larger and heavier packages, and we expect that trend to accelerate during the upcoming holiday season. These surcharges reflect our commitment to responsibly manage capacity through our network during the holiday shipping season.

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.
