In a previous blog post, we discussed the UPS CWT services, and now we will go over UPS Hundredweight surcharge fees. Hundredweight CWT is a cost-effective delivery for non-palletized, multiple-package shipments that weigh 100 to 500 pounds. As a rule, UPS Hundredweight CWT has a 150-pound maximum weight per package. In addition, the max package size is also 165 inches in length and girth combined with a total maximum length of 108 inches.

Since all UPS Hundredweight CWT packages are considered one shipment, there are different rules and applications for additional surcharges that a shipper should consider.
UPS Address Corrections
Even though UPS considers Hundredweight CWT shipments as one, there will be an address correction charge of $19.50 per package. However, the maximum cost for all address corrections is $136.50 per shipment.
UPS Third-Party Billing Fees
We discussed what this fee is in a previous blog post. The fee applies to all shipments billed to a 3rd party, all UPS domestic and international shipments. The 5.0% applies to the total shipping charge. Furthermore, this includes the base rate plus all applicable accessorial and value-added service charges. This new cost could significantly impact your UPS hundredweight surcharge fees.
UPS Hundredweight Delivery Area Surcharges
If your company ships to remote destinations, additional fees called UPS delivery area surcharges (DAS) and extended delivery area surcharges (EDAS) apply. UPS applies these additional charges to packages picked up or delivered to predetermined ZIP codes. In addition, these fees apply to UPS Hundredweight CWT differently than individual packages. There will be one fee for the whole shipment and not applied to each package in the load.
