FedEx Announces the Largest Rate Increase In Years.  Want to see exactly how it will impact your bottom line?

Assuming you’ve already seen the substantial General Rate Increase FedEx announced for 2022, you’re probably wondering how this will affect your shipping budget.

In addition to the numerous COVID-19 related surcharges FedEx enacted in the last two years, the carrier will also increase rates by a whopping 5.9%. 

Be on the lookout for new surcharges and an increased fee structure for existing surcharges. For example, a fuel surcharge will go into effect on November 1, 2021, with variable rates depending on market fuel prices. 

Next year, FedEx is also changing how they assess some of their fees. They’re introducing zone-based pricing for some surcharges, such as additional handling and oversize package fees. This means some packages could actually see a decrease, while others go up as much as 30%.

With FedEx’s rate guides notoriously difficult to decipher, we’ve compiled the increases into an easy-to-use guide.
