Holiday Peak Shipping Carrier Surcharges

Holiday Peak Shipping Carrier Surcharges

This year, DHL, FedEx, UPS, and USPS will implement peak holiday surcharges beginning in October and lasting through mid-January 2021.

As you know, carrier surcharges typically only apply to accessorial fees, but what you may not know is that this year, additional fees are applied across the board. In order to be a true partner to our clients, Ruby Has is prepared to not only inform you what changes are coming so that you can plan appropriately, but to cap these additional surcharges as well. This means that if carriers continue to increase these surcharges, Ruby Has will cover the difference as a gesture of commitment and partnership to you. 

We made a similar decision earlier this year when we waived the $0.30 Covid-19 surcharge that has been in effect since May 31 and will last until November 14, 2020.
