Freight Audit UPS Rates for the Year 2017

Now is the perfect time to Freight Audit UPS Rates as the Rates increase in 2017

Time to Freight Audit UPS Rates with Nessco’s Freight Auditing services! Why you ask? Well, effective December 26, 2016 (the impact of these changes will vary based on your shipping activity and terms of your UPS agreement), the published rates for UPS services will increase. Yes, again. New year, new increases. This supports the ongoing investments UPS continues to make in the speed, scope and coverage of their transportation network. While UPS continuously searches out opportunities for new efficiencies and implements them within their network, those efforts do not fully offset cost increases. To support ongoing expansion and capabilities enhancements, while striving to maintain the high service levels you expect, UPS claims they once again need to increase published rates in 2017.
