UPS has announced that it’s extending its peak season surcharges beyond peak season, indefinitely, with new rates effective Jan 15, 2023.

Like FedEx, UPS is keeping its peak Additional Handling and Large Package surcharges in place at a reduced rate:

  • Additional Handling: $3.50 per package
  • Large Package Surcharge: $40.00 per package

However, unlike FedEx, UPS is also extending its peak season surcharges on SurePost, Ground Residential, and Air Residential shipments.

UPS has also cut the number of baseline volume tiers in half, meaning more shippers will fall into the highest surcharge tier.

  • SurePost: $0.40 to $0.60 per package
  • Ground Residential: $0.40 to $0.60 per package
  • Next Day Air Residential: $0.40 to $0.60 per package
  • All Other Air Residential: $0.40 to $0.60 per package

UPS has removed the “peak” language from these surcharges in their announcement, adjusting the name from “Peak/Demand Surcharge” to “Demand Surcharge.” (From UPS: “The term Demand Surcharge includes Peak/Demand Surcharge and Peak Surcharge, and all of these terms may be used interchangeably.”)

Note that the same volume thresholds that applied to shippers during peak season, still apply for this peak/demand surcharge extension.

Visit UPS Demand Surcharges for details, and to learn if these surcharge extensions will impact your business.

Lastly, the Over Maximum Limits surcharge will not extend beyond Jan 14, 2023.

Update: Shipware has written an overview of the USPS rate increases: USPS 2022 Price Increase & Impact on Shippers

The proposed prices, approved by the Postal Service Governors, would raise Shipping Services product prices approximately 3.1 percent for Priority Mail service, and 3.1 percent for Priority Mail Express service.

(Source: USPS.com)

The USPS has announced its proposed peak holiday season surcharges with effective dates between Oct 2 – Jan 22, 2023.

From Gordon Glazer, USPS expert (https://lnkd.in/gAQsiTwn):

“USPS released proposed peak season surcharges that frankly seem pretty reasonable compared to what FedEx has proposed.

While there are lots of numbers to look at most shippers will be concerned with “Commercial Rates” for:

  • Priority Mail zones 1-4 up to 10 Lbs $.25
  • Priority Mail zones 5-9 up to 10 Lbs $.80
  • Parcel Select Ground zones 1-4, up to 10 Lbs. $.25
  • Parcel Select Ground zones 5-9, up to 10 Lbs. $.40
  • First Class Package Service zones 1-4 $.25
  • First Class Package Service zones 5-9 $.40

Postal consolidators will induct via Parcel Select – usually at the DDU (local P.O.) for most of their packages.

The surcharge this year is $0.25 and, if inducted at the DSCF or DNDC, will be $0.75.

No surcharge this year for PSL (under a pound), USPS Connect Local and Parcel Return service.

The proposed effective dates are Oct 2 – Jan 22, 2023.”

Details, including retail rates and unaffected products, can be found at: USPS Newsroom

The USPS announced a general rate increase (GRI) for shipping services to go into effect on January 22, 2023.

Here are the “Shipper Focused” Highlights:

  • New rates for USPS Competitive, aka “Shipping Services,” are proposed to go into effect on January 22, 2023. It will require the rubber stamp approval of the PRC.
  • New Returns solution: an Outbound Label creation option for $1.25.
  • Commercial Plus and Commercial rate charts are merging and will simply be called “Commercial.”
  • Splitting existing zone “L,1 & 2” to zone 1 and zone 2. In addition, Local is transitioning to “Connect Local.”
  • Priority Mail International: Canada is removing origination zones to a simplified single zone as just another country group – likely will not require additional pages of rates.
  • Non-Standard Fees (NSF): Charges for oversized packages will go up for Express services and down for Ground. Dimensional policies remain the same with the first cubic foot excluded and 166 Dim factor.
  • International rates for Priority and Express (PMI & PMEI) +6%, First Class Package International Service (FCPIS) + 6.5%.

On the heels of UPS & FedEx, OnTrac has just announced their peak season surcharges.

Part of the newly formed, transcontinental network with LaserShip, OnTrac’s peak surcharges are nearly identical to those of UPS and FedEx (especially UPS).

Effective Oct 2, 2022 to Jan 14, 2023:

  • Large Package Surcharge: $70.00 per package
  • Additional Handling Surcharge: $6.50 per package

For comparison, FedEx’s peak oversize and additional handling surcharges are $68.75 and $6.55, respectively, and UPS’s large package and additional handling surcharges are the same as OnTrac’s at $70.00 and $6.50.

For their Residential Delivery Surcharge, like UPS and FedEx, OnTrac will determine the assessed surcharge based on peaking factors.

Effective Oct 30, 2022 to Jan 14, 2023, a surcharge will apply to all residential deliveries. Surcharge amounts will vary based on the percentage of weekly peak volume by service over baseline volume (105% of baseline to 400%+ of baseline) and range from $1.25 to $6.00.

The “baseline” volume is the customer’s average weekly volume for each service level for June 2022. HOWEVER, if the customer’s average weekly volume during September 2022 was less than 80% of that of June 2022, then OnTrac, at its discretion, can use the lower weekly average volume from September to determine the baseline.

Unlike FedEx & UPS, however, no version of a 20,000 weekly average package volume threshold was noted. The surcharge will apply to all customers.

In addition, OnTrac lists a couple of caveats for shippers that have not tendered residential packages during the baseline periods.
