Airborne Express to Raise Rates

Share this article:
Airborne Express said yesterday that it will begin phasing in general rate increases for its domestic shipping products Jan. 2.


Airborne's rates for Overnight Express, 10:30 Urgent A.M., Next-Afternoon, Second Day Service and International Express will rise an average of 4 percent. Rates for Ground Delivery Service and airborne@home will rise an average of 3.5 percent.


The increases will be applied to individual customers not under rate-guarantee contracts. Increases for those customers will be phased in as the contracts are renewed.


Seattle-based Airborne also will add a $1.25 residential delivery fee and $1.50 delivery area surcharge fee to its air express services. These fees already exist for its Ground Delivery Service.
