UPS Plans Rate Hike for Heavy Freight as E-Commerce Volume Grows

UPS Inc. will increase its over-the-maximum limits and the oversize pallet-handling surcharge to $650 from $500 beginning June 4. The Atlanta-based parcel-delivery company said in a statement to Transport Topics it is raising the rate because many of the items it is being asked to ship are not suited for its small-package network and instead should be moved through its UPS Freight network.
