FedEx Adds Delivery Surcharge, Follows UPS

From The WSJ:

Starting June 8, FedEx is adding a surcharge of 30 cents to all packages headed to homes. It applies to customers who send more than 40,000 packages a week if their weekly shipping volume is more than 120% of its average volume in February, a person familiar with the matter said.

FedEx will also start charging $30 extra for all oversize deliveries, two people familiar with the matter said.

A final surcharge will tag 40 cents onto all packages shipped using SmartPost, these people said, where FedEx deposits packages to the U.S. Postal Service for delivery to homes. FedEx is winding down that service this year and incorporating more of those packages into its ground network.

It was only a matter of time. UPS made the announcement last week.
