Manage Your Parcel GRI with Parcel BI

The general rate increase or GRI is the annual price increase issued every year by the major parcel carriers. Though this is a known occurrence, many customers might not notice when these price increases happen, which in turn can alter your parcel budget without your knowledge. The carriers claim that the prices increase around 4.2% every year, but that is not the true picture.

The 4.2% increase is distributed across the services, weights, and zones in a selective manner that are to the carrier’s advantage based on the weights and zones that they serve the most. Additionally, the surcharge price increases are not included in the 4.2% increase and generally increase much more.
