3 Major Takeaways from 2021 FedEx, UPS Rate Increases

FedEx and UPS rates are going up in 2021 and it’s more important than ever that NSGA members know how to mitigate the effect on their business. Here are a few things you should know about the changes to come:

  1. FedEx and UPS small package rates are increasing an average of 4.9% - effective January 4, 2021 and December 27, 2020 respectively.
  2. Your actual costs will vary. Depending on the service you use and your package characteristics you could see increases above or below the average.
  3. Many common surcharges are also increasing. On top of the base rates, you need to be aware of the charges that apply to your shipments and how they’ll affect your total costs.
