IBPA members have a clear advantage this holiday season
Posted September 14, 2018
FedEx recently announced that for the second year in a row, it will not apply additional residential surcharges during the holiday season, except for shipments that are oversized, unauthorized or necessitate additional handling. Residential shipments sent with other carriers could incur an additional surcharge during peak days in November and December.
This is good news for IBPA members who expect a significant amount of e-commerce orders over the 2018 holiday season. As a free member benefit, IBPA members have access to exclusive discounts with FedEx. Between the savings through the IBPA Shipping Program, and avoiding a peak surcharge on residential shipments, members have a clear advantage this holiday season.
