With inflation climbing due to supply and demand imbalance, labor shortages and cost increases, and supply chain complications and cost increases, shipping rates have been climbing steadily over the last two years. These effects are felt with every carrier with the most recognizable names recently implementing both rate and assessorial increases that are leaving some customers with over double-digit percent cost increases.  

"Rate increases are set to take effect on Jan. 3, 2022, for all US domestic, US export and US import services for FedEx Ground and FedEx home delivery. The increase will be an average of 5.9%. FedEx Freight customers could see an increase of up to 7.9%" - (Ramishah, Maruf, 2021) CNN Business News


"USPS is raising rates next year by nearly 6% and UPS announced a 5.9% general rate increase for 2022.” - (Corbin, Kenneth, 2021) Ecommerce Bytes
