Here is some good news in the parcel industry!
UPS and FedEx have announced significantly lower fuel surcharges for December. With the cost of a barrel of oil falling, you have been probably wondering why you are still paying nearly 30% in fuel surcharges on express and international shipments.
Here are the new rates beginning December 1 through January 4, 2009.
- 15% for express and international (down from 28.5%)
6.75% for ground (down from 8.25%)
Happy Holidays from your parcel carriers!
