UPS and FedEx contracts can be tough to wrap your head around. Even if you completely understand the rate matrices, surcharge tables and terms, you’ll need to understand exactly how to blend those together to create the perfect rate structure for your business. On top of all that, you’ll also need to know how much flex UPS & FedEx has within each surcharge and rate category.
Both carriers have over 80 surcharges and double-digit service classes. That leaves you with nearly 100 possible data points to optimize.
