FedEx has announced shipping rate and surcharge changes for 2017 that do not match those announced by UPS on September 1st.
Effective January 2, 2017 FedEx will increase shipping rates as follows:
- FedEx Express will increase shipping rates by an average of 3.9% for US services
- UPS services will increase 4.9% for same service categories.
- FedEx Ground and FedEx Home Delivery will increase shipping rates by an average of 4.9%.
- This is the same as UPS.
- The domestic dimensional weight calculation (DIM) for FedEx packages will change from 166 to 139. This is already the current divisor for international shipments.
On February 6, 2017, the fuel surcharge percentage for FedEx will be adjusted weekly and not based on a monthly average. Currently, adjustments are made on a monthly basis with a 2 month lag between the U.S. Government published fuel indexes and the fuel surcharges.
