FedEx’s 2018 Holiday Rates

For the second year in a row, FedEx will not apply additional residential surcharges during the holiday season. However, effective Nov. 19 through Dec. 24, 2018, FedEx will apply additional peak surcharges to shipments that qualify as oversized, unauthorized or necessitate additional handling, in addition to existing charges. See the table below for additional details.

The following additional peak surcharges will take effect during the holiday season between Nov. 19, 2018–Dec. 24, 2018. These new charges will apply to shipments that already qualify as oversize, unauthorized, or necessitate additional handling, and thus already incur the ‘standard’ surcharge.
