To prepare for the peak holiday season, FedEx® is implementing various peak surcharges and fees. They are doing this in anticipation of the high demand and increase in residential volume due to the upcoming holidays. These fees and surcharges go into effect on September 5, 2022 and end on January 15, 2023. FedEx Express® and FedEx Ground® are both effected by these changes.
Here are some of the fees and surcharges:
