FedEx Ground Delivery Price Changes in Mid-2016
Tweet Share

Effective June 1, 2016, FedEx is changing the measurement that determines whether the Additional Handling Surcharge will be applied to FedEx Ground services packages in the U.S. Instead of 60 inches, any package with the longest side exceeding 48 inches will now be assessed the surcharge of $10.50 for FedEx Ground delivery services originating from the U.S.

For users of the SolvingMaze Advanced Shipping Calculator, the rate changes will be automatic because the calculator is seamlessly integrated with FedEx Rating. There are no special modifications required for your system and the rate changes will appear automatically starting on the effective date. However, to avoid the Additional Handling Surcharge, you may want to evaluate your packing needs and minimize using long boxes exceeding 48 inches for shipment that doesn't require the extra length. If you must, you can consider using boxes with adjustable depth so the package length is cut down to fit the shipment tightly. This will help you avoid the additional handling charge as well as lowering the dimensional weight. To make this easy for you, the SolvingMaze Advanced Shipping Calculator has built-in support for adjustable-depth boxes.
