As we covered in an earlier post, FedEx announced that dimensional weight (DIM) pricing will apply to all ground shipments, effective January 1, 2015. UPS recently followed suit and announced they will be making the same change. This means that instead of charging by weight alone, all ground packages will now be priced according to size as well. This is a significant change from the rating structure in place today and it could ultimately mean an additional increase in your small package shipping costs.
To help you determine what this pricing change will mean for you and your business in 2015, we've put together a special report. Click here or on the button below to download your free copy, and be on the lookout at the end of the year for our comprehensive white paper on the 2015 small package general rate increases (GRI).
As noted in our special report, one of the best ways to offset these upcoming small package rate increases is to secure additional discounts through your association or industry group. PartnerShip offers association members discounts on select FedEx® services.
