FedEx Freight shipping rates to increase in July 2012

Last week, FedEx Freight confirmed plans about an increase in its shipping rates by 6.9 percent.

The new rate change is going to take effect on 9th July 2012 and will affect freight shipments within and to Canada. The same applies to the contiguous USA. Beyond that, freight shipped to Mexico from the USA will also be charged by 6.9 percent more. However, this will only affect transport from the U.S to the Mexico border.

Taking effect on 9th July any freight shipments falling under the FXF 100, FXF 500 and series related rates will experience higher charges. Despite the rate increases, FedEx Freight promised that it was not going to change its fuel surcharges.

Visit the FedEx website for more information about the new FedEx Freight base rates and tariff rules.
