Additional Handling Surcharge

Fedex Price Increase

Additional Handling Surcharge – “Thank you sir, may I have another?”

Ben knows that parcel shippers are continually facing escalating rates and service fees. In fact, many shippers may feel like they are they are in that famous scene from Animal House, and all you can do is say “Thank you sir, may I have another”.

Take the new application of how UPS and FedEx now apply the Additional Handling Surcharge for weight! Prior to this year, only shipments over 70 lbs were assessed this additional fee. In 2020, UPS and FedEx changed the rules of the game again. Today, packages 50 lbs and over are now slapped with this heavy surcharge. At $24 per package, an increase of that magnitude could prove catastrophic to those unprepared! Now is the time to rise up with Ben and stand tall to these outrageous fees.
