Start Planning for the New Year

FedEx will be increasing their rates by almost 5%. The different services provided by FedEx will be changing their average rates by January of 2018. The FedEx freight, express and ground rates will be rising between 3.5 to 4.5%. There will also be additional charges for shipments from the 20th of November to December 24th 2017.

FedEx, USPS and UPS do offer great services but may not be necessarily affordable to use their services during the new year. If you are looking for another alternative for your company that might be a little easier on the mind then you are looking in the right place.
