Whether you are an experienced transportation manager, a purchasing manager or a CFO trying to understand the impact of these new delivery price models and contracts on you, you need clarification and due diligence. So why not wait the full 3 years (156 weeks), because that`s the term most shippers sign? FedEx and UPS don`t wait three years to make changes… Why would you do that? Airlines have an annual increase, where they generally propose an increase of 4% to 5% in interest rates. However, the effects vary considerably depending on the sender, depending on the profiles and shipping characteristics. Most shippers are increasing from 6% to 10% each year. This is due to the fact that the increase does not apply to the same for service, area and weight, and it was designed to have a greater impact on the weights and areas that are most important to most shippers. Few companies have the opportunity to increase their prices by 5% to 10% each year, but UPS and FedEx have strong arguments as to why this increase is necessary, when they generally underestimate the budgetary impact. Even if your contract provides protection against the GRI in the form of a tariff cap, this usually covers only part of the increase. The GRI cap does not apply to additional charges that are generally deducted from a dollar percentage or value of the gross charge. As the list increases, these rates increase as well as the minimum charges. Accessory fees and surcharges can account for 30% of your shipping costs. Just look at the impact of the new dimensional weight rules… They don`t need to be mathematicians to understand airline pricing processes and their new pricing models.
These are not calculation or algebra formulas, but rather to understand the impact of package characteristics and the new transportation contract terminology on the industry and on you as a shipper. We are not responsible for your actions or omissions, including, but not only for a false loading statement; Inadequate or inadequate packaging, safety, marking or addressing; either to the actions or omissions of the recipient or another person interested in sending it. In addition, we will not be liable if you or the recipient violates any of the terms of our contract. We are not responsible for loss, damage, delay, defect, mis delivery, non-delivery, misinformation or any inappropriate information about cash, currency or other prohibited items. Use the data to navigate it in the small print of transit contracts and optimize your shipping conditions. I realized… While UPS and FedEx can be the leaders in delivery, YOU are the leader in your own delivery management. The first step is to decide which services to focus on.
