The pollen count’s not the only thing that’s higher this month. 

On April 11, UPS rolled out an increased fuel surcharge that’s remarkably similar to the one that FedEx just activated on April 4.

The new version of UPS’s surcharge tacks an extra 1.75% onto UPS’s domestic Ground and Express fuel surcharges – and applies to parcel base transportation rates as well as major accessorial charges such as Residential Surcharge, Large Package Surcharges, and Peak Surcharges.

For more details about how this will affect your overall parcel spend, check out the table below.  In addition, don’t miss some of our other related features on our blog.
