Please be aware of a new peak surcharge being imposed by UPS for the 2017 holiday season. It was originally announced back in June of this year, I thought it would be a great time to bring attention to the topic once more since surcharges begin this week according to UPS.
The surcharge will happen during two key peak periods. The first will occur this week - 11/19/17 until 12/2/17 for packages shipped via UPS Ground. The second period will be from 12/17/17 until 12/23/17. The second period will not only include UPS Ground - it will also include many express (air) services.
The surcharge is dependent on the service type. See the table below and visit the UPS press room page link below for more details.
