ffective January 2, 2012 UPS and FedEx will again increase their rates and fees. Do you know what this increase is going to cost your company? Likely between 6% and 12%!!! As the published rates from the two major carriers go up, at a rate of more than three times inflation, and the accessorial charges, such as Dimensional Weight, Address Corrections, Residential Deliveries, Delivery Area Surcharges etc. continue to increase, companies need to look for ways to reduce these out of control costs.
