As of June 30, UPS will be charging an increase of 5.9 percent for non-contractual shipments in the U.S., Canada and Mexico. The rate adjustment applies to minimum charge, less-than-truckload (LTL) and truckload (TL) rates, and accessorial charges.
Rate increases are not unusual in the freight business and usually occur once a year. Carriers may also assess surcharges to reflect spikes in fuel charges.
Customers will be able to view and download the new rates at ltl.upsfreight.com on June 10, 2013.
UPS Freight supports shippers’ heavy freight needs. UPS Freight’s network provides regional, interregional and long-haul LTL service as well as truckload, intermodal and dedicated contract carriage solutions.
