FedEx Peak Season Surcharges for 2022

FedEx announced an increase in surcharges for the holiday season which go into effect on September 5, 2022 until January 2023. This will affect U.S. Express, Ground and Ground International services.

Many of these surcharges have been incremental increases and are higher than the previous year.

While these surcharges apply to all levels of shippers, it is likely that enterprise merchants who see an increase in cargo during peak season will be most impacted. Understanding how FedEx calculates their Peaking Factor can help plan for the added costs.
