Additional FedEx Surcharges Announced for APAC

Additional FedEx Surcharges Announced for APAC

FedEx Rate Increase

As the COVID-19 pandemic developed, global shipping has seen disruptions across the board. As a result, many carriers have instituted additional surcharges and overall changes in order to cope.

Back in early April, FedEx announced additional surcharges to a variety of services due to COVID-19. Starting at the end of May, they will increase some of those surcharges.

Why This Change?

The disruptions to supply chains as a result of COVID-19 have been immense. Not only have they affected shipping times but capacity – particularly air cargo capacity – has become limited as well. These capacity limitations are apparently causing carriers like FedEx to incur additional costs, making it necessary to increase surcharges for certain services.

Services Included in Surcharge Changes

According to FedEx:

Beginning May 25, the surcharge amount for most FedEx Express international parcel and freight shipments originating in Hong Kong SAR, China will increase, as will the amount for most FedEx Express international freight shipments originating in China.

The recent surcharge increases are focused on items originating in APAC and going to destinations outside of APAC.
