UPS and FedEx have both set their rates to increase by approximately 5% in January of 2010. It happens every year. Depending on how good your rep is you may or may not hear that much about it. Yet, it happens year after year and if you don't pay much attention, it can have a significant impact on your transportation revenue spend. If your company spends $50,000 per year on shipping and your rate increase is 5% that means that your shipping costs have increased by more than $200 per month!
UPS and FedEx are raising their rates again - do you have a plan?
