Fedex 2018 accessorials fees surcharges value added services

2018 FedEx fees for value-added services

There are dozens of accessorial charges to be aware of when shipping. Accessorials account for a large percentage of carriers’ total annual revenue and continue to be a pain to shippers everywhere. The fact is, just like the telephone companies, hotels and airlines, parcel carriers like FedEx are counting on these extra shipping fees to make them money.

Often referred to as “value-added” services, accessorial charges quickly eat away at your bottom line. Carriers use these charges to pocket money from customers since no incentives exist at this time to reduce accessorials.

The following accessorial charges took effect on January 1, 2018. Please refer to the FedEx value-add service guide for a complete list of charges.
