UPS published new rates for 2013, including an average net increase of 4.9% on UPS Ground services.

The rate increase for UPS Ground services is based on a 5.9% average increase in the base rate, less a one percentage point reduction to the Ground fuel surcharge table.

UPS Next Day Air Freight, UPS 2nd Day Air Freight and UPS 3 Day Freight rates for shipments within and between the U.S., Canada and Puerto Rico also will increase 4.9%.


The new rates take effect Dec. 31, 2012.

Sunday, UPS also announced that service has resumed throughout the Northeast, although there may be some road closures, flooding, and power outages due to Superstorm Sandy in isolated areas of New Jersey and New York.
