FedEx to raise ground rates 4.9% for 2010 - Basically a mirror of UPS 2010 Ground Rates. FedEx Corp. has quietly announced it will raise shipping rates for its Ground and Home Delivery units by an average of 4.9 percent in 2010 — these rates pretty much mirror UPS’s 2010 rate structure. FedEx had announced an average 5.9% 2010 Express rate increase in September. 

The rate increases will go into effect on Jan. 4. PARCEL will have additional details next week – and a full UPS, FedEx, USPS 2010 rate comparison in our Jan./Feb. print issue.
