UPS announced U.S. rate changes for 2019. Effective December 26, 2018, the rates for UPS® Ground, UPS Air and International services, as well as UPS Air Freight rates within and between the U.S., Canada and Puerto Rico, will increase an average net 4.9%.
The rate increase follows the same percentage FedEx announced last month.
In a statement, UPS said:
“UPS continues to make investments in capacity, technology and reach of our transportation network in order to support our customers’ growth, visibility, and service needs. Rate increases support ongoing expansion and capabilities enhancements while ensuring UPS is fairly compensated for the value and high service levels provided.”
