50% off Oversize? Not really……. FedEx added a peak surcharge of $30. UPS added a $50, effectively taking away the great discounts you worked so hard to get. Additional Handling Surcharge Fedex $3 UPS $5.
Carriers have shifted completely to relying on Fees to supplement the high discounts they flooded the market to compete with Amazon shipping. Now that Amazon is out of the game for the present future, they are heavily taking back revenue from the shippers.
what you can do to combat this?
1. Look at your bills
2. What are the fees mostly affecting your bottom line
3. call your rep and discuss how the fees can be eliminated or discounted
