Shipping Changes to Fuel Surcharge

Effective November 1, 2021, a fuel surcharge increase will be applied to US FedEx Express, FedEx Ground, and FedEx Freight shipments. More information to come.

FedEx Shipping Changes to Minimum Net Charges  

Consequently, the FedEx Ground and Home Delivery minimum net charge will also increase. The 2022 FedEx rate for the minimum net charge will go from $8.76 to $9.36. This is an increase of 6.85%. In contrast, the 2021 increase was just 6.44%. The first thing to remember, the carriers implement a minimum net charge to ALL packages. This is the most inexpensive amount a shipper will pay to send any package.

2020 FedEx Shipping Rate Changes

The 2022 FedEx rate for the minimum net charge will go from $8.76 to $9.36. This is an increase of 6.85% for 2022. 2021 had an increase of only 6.44%.

Other 2022 FedEx Rate Increase Changes

Equally important, FedEx will be changing the application of additional handling charges. Additional handling surcharge and oversize surcharge rates for Express and Ground will be determined based on the shipment’s zone.

Also, FedEx Freight will introduce a No Shipment Tendered Surcharge. The No Shipment Tendered surcharge will apply when a pickup is performed and no shipment is tendered to FedEx.
