Closer alignment between fuel costs and surcharges at time of shipment
FedEx Express, FedEx Ground and FedEx Freight will increase shipping rates effective January 2, 2017. FedEx Express will increase shipping rates by an average of 3.9% for US domestic, US export and US import services.
FedEx Ground and FedEx Home Delivery will increase shipping rates by an average of 4.9%. FedEx SmartPost rates will also change.
Effective January 2, 2017, the FedEx Express and FedEx Ground US domestic dimensional weight divisor will change from 166 to 139.
Effective February 6, 2017, FedEx Express and FedEx Ground fuel surcharges will be adjusted on a weekly basis. Currently, adjustments are made on a monthly basis with a two month lag between the US Government published fuel indexes and the fuel surcharges. Adjusting on a weekly basis will reduce lag time from two months to two weeks, thus providing a closer alignment between fuel costs and fuel surcharges at the time of shipment.
The FedEx SameDay City pricing changes for calendar 2017 will be announced later this year.
FedEx Freight will increase shipping rates by an average of 4.9%. This rate change applies to eligible FedEx Freight shipments within the US (including Alaska, Hawaii, Puerto Rico and the US Virgin Islands), between the contiguous US and Canada, within Canada, between the contiguous US and Mexico, and within Mexico.
Effective January 2, 2017, the FedEx Freight Extreme Length surcharge will change from US$85 to US$150 and will be applied to shipments with dimensions of 12 feet or greater versus the prior 15 feet.
