Carrier Surcharges Impacting Retailers

February 27, 2020


We all are aware of the annual average rate increases (see more analysis here) that are announced by FedEx and UPS but it’s the carrier surcharges that are really impacting retailers. A team of SME executives recently attended RILA and shared our latest infographic – Surcharges Impacting Retailers.

All carrier surcharges can impact retailers one way or another but we’ve highlighted some of the most impactful that we’ve uncovered on behalf of our clients – UPS Large Package and Overmax, FedEx Oversize, Delivery Area Surcharges, Additional Handling and Residential. In just a three-year period, these surcharges have increased by double-digits.
