5. Automation Bonus

i. A Participant who has successfully entered this Campaign in accordance with paragraph 3 above qualifies for the Automation Bonus when shipments are made through an eligible FedEx digital shipping solution, including but not limited to FedEx Ship Manager™ at fedex.com. Upon request of the Participant, FedEx will provide a list of eligible digital shipping solutions. The Automation Bonus for using eligible digital shipping solutions is subject to change by FedEx.

iii. When a Participant qualifies for an Automation Bonus by making a shipment using an eligible digital shipping solution, the Participant’s Earned Discount (as specified below in paragraph 6), if any, shall be applied to such Eligible Shipments in addition to the Automation Bonus. The Automation Bonus may be applied separately from the Earned Discount, as defined below.

6. Earned Discount

i. At the end of the Initial Period, Participants who have an active FedEx account during the last month of the Initial period, as determined by FedEx, may receive an earned discount (“Earned Discount”) of 25%, 30%, 35% or 40% depending on the Participant’s Average Monthly Spend (as defined below).

ii. The Earned Discount will be calculated by totaling the Participant’s Average Monthly Spend (as defined below) on invoiced total gross transportation charges (“Transportation Charges”) of all Eligible Shipments (as defined above). The Earned Discount will be taken off FedEx list prices in effect on the date Eligible Shipments are tendered to FedEx.

iii. The Transportation Charges used in the calculation of the Participant’s Average Monthly Spend (as defined below) are before discounts are applied, and do not include ancillary service fees, surcharges, special handling fees or other charges, duties and taxes, or sales tax/VAT.

iv. The “Average Monthly Spend” will be calculated as follows:

a. in the month immediately following the Initial Period, the Average Monthly Spend is calculated based on the gross customer spend on Transportation Charges in the preceding one (1) month, being the last full month of the Participant’s Initial Period; and

b. thereafter, the Average Monthly Spend is calculated based on the cumulative gross customer spend on Transportation Charges in the preceding months (commencing from the last month of the customer’s Initial Period), up to and including the customer’s cumulative gross spend on Transportation Charges over the preceding twelve (12) months.

c. Please see below paragraph (v) for an example of the calculation of the Earned Discount.

v. The amount of the Earned Discount to be applied to the relevant invoices will be calculated each month as follows:

Earned Discount Tiers

Minimum Average Monthly Spend on Transportation Charges with FedEx (ZAR) Discount* to be Enjoyed in the Following Month
1 Up to ZAR 11,999 30%
2 ZAR 12,000 35%
3 ZAR 14,000 40%
4 ZAR 18,000 and above 45%

* Total discount is subject to a calculation of the Earned Discount and the 5% Automation Discount

vi. The Earned Discount can only be applied to export or import shipments using the following FedEx services:

a. FedEx International Priority® (IP)

b. FedEx International Economy® (IE)

c. FedEx International Priority® Freight (IPF)

d. FedEx International Economy® Freight (IEF)

vii. Earned Discount Example: If a Participant joins the Campaign on April 1st, 2021, the Participant’s Initial Period will be three (3) months, commencing on April 1st, 2021 and ending on June 30th, 2021. During that Initial Period, the Participant will be eligible to receive the 35% Promotional Discount. The Participant’s account will then be placed in this Campaign, the FedEx Ship More, Save More Program, starting July 1st, 2021. The Earned Discount for July will be calculated based on the Transportation Charges from the last full calendar month of the Initial Period (which is June 2021 in this example). If the participant spends ZAR 11,000 on transportation charges during the month of June 2021 (being the last full month of the Participant’s Initial Period), the Participant’s Earned Discount in July 2021 (i.e., the first month following the Initial Period) will be 30% (based on the Earned Discount Tiers table as set out above). If the Participant then spends ZAR 13,500 on transportation charges in July 2021, the Participant’s Earned Discount in August 2021 (i.e., the following month) will be 35% which is based on the transportation charges incurred in June and July, divided by 2 months (i.e., ZAR 11,000 + ZAR 13,500 = ZAR 23,000; ZAR 24,500/2 months = ZAR 12,250). This pattern of calculation will continue over the life of the Participant’s account, aggregating up to a maximum of the last twelve (12) months spend on gross transportation charges.

Note: the Earned Discount may vary slightly from that shown above, depending on the billing cycle of the individual Participant’s account. For the avoidance of doubt, the same discount principles will apply as set out under “Earned Discount” above.

viii. The Participant may view the Earned Discount applied to their shipment by referring to their FedEx invoice and/or referring to the FedEx Rate Sheet tool for detail.
