2021 FedEx Rate Increase Announced

Every year, carriers increase their shipping rates, and it is always a mystery until they have released the strategic plans as to which areas will see the increase. They recently announced their plans, and for 2021, there are a few areas that will see a high increase in shipping rates, as well as additional fees and penalties.

Large Package Shippers Will Feel the Impact

Oversized packages and unauthorized oversized package rates are increasing. Additionally, there are new handling surcharges that are impacting these larger parcels.

If you are a shipper of large or heavy boxes, the 2021 rate increase will be targeted at you.

Changes in Delivery Rates

There will be increased delivery fees and surcharges in for delivery area and extended area zip codes.

Late Fees

Unlike UPS, FedEx has never issued a late fee for late payment, but in 2021 that will change. FedEx is going to be assessing a 6% late fee on bills that are past due. We often expose late fees costing UPS shippers Thousands, Tens of Thousands, or even more. Be on the lookout.

How Can Parcel BI Help?

We can take your historical volume and then project it forward using the new rates so you can strategically look at how these new rates are going to impact your costs in the future.

Shippers who are using our Invoice Analytics and our Contract Edge tools will be able to predict where they are today and see where they will be in the future. This will allow them to start planning accordingly and maybe negotiate skillfully with their carrier.
