Received this email today, thought i'd share... Dear UPS Customer, Again this year we’ve made investments in the speed, scope and coverage of our transportation network. While we continuously search out opportunities for new efficiencies and implement them within our network, those efforts do not fully offset cost increases. To support ongoing expansion and capabilities enhancements, while striving to maintain the high service levels you expect from UPS, we will increase published rates in 2017. 2017 Rates Information* Effective December 26, 2016, the following changes will take effect: Daily rates for UPS® Ground service will increase an average net 4.9%. Daily rates for 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 Additional Handling charge will be assessed for UPS Air and International packages with the longest side exceeding 48 inches, instead of 60 inches. To review and download the new Daily rates today, visit ups.com/rates. For information about other rates and additional charges, visit ups.com/rates on November 18, 2016. Thank you for continuing to entrust UPS with your business. We look forward to continuing to serve your business and finding innovative ways to support your future success. *The impact of these changes on your shipping costs will vary according to your shipping characteristics and the terms of your UPS agreement. © 2016 United Parcel Service of America, Inc.
