UPS and FedEx Take Different Approaches to Peak Holiday Volume

9/11/2017

If you use UPS for your small package residential shipments, expect to see a jump in costs this holiday season. UPS announced that it will add a 27-cent charge on all Ground residential packages from November 19 through December 2 and then again from December 17 through December 23. Air packages and packages that qualify as large or over maximum limits will also see an increase. In a notable departure from UPS, FedEx will not follow suit. Instead, the only holiday surcharge they will be adding is for packages that are big or bulky enough to require special handling. PartnerShip®, the company that manages the Greater Akron Chamber Shipping Program, has taken a closer look at these changes. Click here to learn more about what shippers can expect this holiday season. Greater Akron Chamber members receive exclusive discounts on select FedEx® services through the Greater Akron Chamber Shipping Program.
