Fuel prices are falling across the globe, but that doesn’t necessarily mean your transportation costs are going to drop proportionally. On February 2, 2015, FedEx will modify the tables it uses to calculate fuel surcharges for FedEx Express, FedEx Ground and FedEx Freight.
You can view the modified tables at http://www.fedex.com/us/services/fuelsurcharge-2015.html.
As you can see, the fuel surcharges for FedEx Express, FedEx Ground and FedEx Freight will all actually be higher in 2015 than they were in 2014.
According to an article published by ParcelIndustry.com, these increases might be intended to bring FedEx fuel surcharges more in line with the rates charged by UPS. Fortunately, no matter which freight carrier you use, a sophisticated data analysis can result in reduced transportation costs for your company.
