2017 Shipping Rates for UPS, FedEx, and CanadaPost
Every year, the published shipping rates for the major carrier changes. On December
26th, 2016, UPS will increase its rates on average by 4.0%1 for ground services and international services and 6.0%1 for domestic air services. FedEx will be increasing its shipping rates on average by 3.9%2,4 effective January 2nd, 2017.
CanadaPost will increase their domestic shipping rates on average by 4.0% and their US/International rates by 3%3.
The notable changes this year
- FedEx and UPS will both have dim divisor of 139 instead of 166 (ie. if your shipments are currently charged based on package dimensions, expect a pretty significant increase in pricing).
- Effective Feb 6th, 2017, FedEx will adjust its fuel surcharges for FedEx Express and FedEx Ground on a weekly basis (instead of monthly)
What does this mean for me?
Since Secureship offers you a percentage savings based on the tariff prices of these
carriers, it means you will see a small increase
in your shipping rates when the carrier raises their rates.
