FedEx Holiday Calendar Changes for Peak 2016

In preparation for Peak 2016, please note the following FedEx Holiday Calendar changes. As the demand of a growing e-commerce segment increases, FedEx claims to be making these changes to help ensure management of shipment capacity and meet the service level you have come to expect. In actuality, FedEx is limiting your money-back guarantee due to their increase in volume and inability to meet the usual commit times as you expect throughout the year.

Contact Nessco Freight Auditing today to ensure that you are getting the most value from your FedEx shipping services and taking advantage of your money-back guarantee. Nessco Freight Auditing guarantees to reduce your overall FedEx shipping costs by auditing for parcel shipping refunds. These refunds are due to you for an extensive list of invoice errors and incorrect freight charges. Call us: 732-695-3230 x101 – you will only gain, never lose!
