As of 3rd September, FedEx will be changing how it charges for oversize and overweight consignments. And be aware that in the peak seasonal period, commencing 19th November and continuing until 24th December in this case, there will be additional charges for non-complaint parcels. It’s a good reminder to ensure that your despatches meet the size and weight criteria for your carrier. Basically, if you get it wrong, the cost of your mistakes will be higher.

  • more than 150 pounds

Additional Handling Surcharge

The cost of the Additional Handling Surcharge will increase from $12 to $20 per package for United States express package services, US and international ground services and the international express package service.
