U.S. express delivery giant FedEx plan to raise freight rate by an average of 6.9%

According to the latest report, the US express delivery giant FedEx announced that in response to the slowdown in the global express delivery business, it plans to increase the freight rate by an average of 6.9% from January next year.


The price hike comes days after FedEx slashed its profit and sales forecasts. It is worth mentioning that the price increase this time is higher than in previous years. FedEx increased rates by an average of 5.9% last year, the first time in eight years that rates have risen more than 4.9%.
