FedEx Express to increase average shipping rates 3.5 percent in 2007

Share this content:

FedEx Corp. will increase the net average shipping rate for FedEx Express by 3.5 percent beginning Jan. 1.

FedEx said the new rates apply to U.S. domestic and U.S. export express package and freight shipments. The increase comprises a 5.5 percent average increase in standard list rates offset by a 2 percent reduction in its fuel surcharge.

The fuel surcharge also will be levied on some transportation-based surcharges such as Residential and Delivery Area surcharge for all domestic shipments and for those U.S. export and U.S. import FedEx Express shipments paid by U.S. payers.

FedEx Ground rates also will increase for 2007. These changes will be announced later this year.

The rate adjustments from FedEx Express and FedEx Ground allow it to enhance its operations and services, the carrier said.

FedEx, Memphis, TN, will add a new dimensional weight system for oversized, large FedEx Ground shipments. If the dimensional weight is greater than the actual weight, dimensional weight will apply to FedEx Ground shipments that are three cubic feet or greater.

A FedEx Ground dimensional weight customer aid will be available at www.fedex.com to assist customers. This change will be effective Feb. 5, 2007. Additional changes will be made to other FedEx Express surcharges effective Jan. 1, 2007.

The details of these surcharges will be available at fedex.com by Nov. 10.
