SDRA Members Have a Clear Shipping Price Advantage This Holiday SeasonSouth Dakota Retailers Association - PartnerShip 9/21/2018
FedEx recently announced that for the second year in a row, it will not apply additional residential surcharges during the holiday season, except for shipments that are oversized, unauthorized or necessitate additional handling. Residential shipments sent with other carriers could incur an additional surcharge during peak days in November and December.
This is good news for SDRA members who expect a significant amount of e-commerce orders over the 2018 holiday season. As a free member benefit, SDRA members have access to exclusive discounts with FedEx. Between the savings through the SDRA Shipping Program, and avoiding a peak surcharge on residential shipments, members have a clear advantage this holiday season.
