UPS rate increases
UPS has announced it will be raising it’s rates for 2017. The new rates go into effect December 26th 2016 . As many of us in the taxidermy industry are aware, the cost of our supplies is effected directly by these increase, as well as the cost of having them shipped in. Raising our prices, combining shipments, and using alternate methods of shipping like freight can help to keep these costs under control. Using local and regional carries like Spee Dee delivery can dramatically cut shipping costs.
A break down of some of the new charges from UPS :
Daily rates for UPS® Ground service will increase an average net 4.9%.
Daily rates for UPS Air and International services will increase an average net 4.9%.
The Additional Handling charge will be assessed for UPS Air and International packages with the longest side exceeding 48 inches, instead of 60 inches.
