FedEx launches flat rate shipping for US customers

fedexFedEx Express, an operating company of FedEx Corp. has recently introduced FedEx One Rate for the U.S. customers which would provide them with a predictable, flat rate shipping option for their express packages.

The new shipping option has been designed to help small businesses better predict the price of their shipments for financial planning services, while making it easier to share shipping costs with their customers.

“For consumers and small businesses alike, FedEx One Rate pricing allows customers to plan and control their express shipping costs more easily. They can add to the box without adding to the cost,” said Raj Subramaniam, executive vice president of Marketing at FedEx Services.

To use the service, FedEx One Rate customers just need to select their free FedEx Express packaging, an eligible FedEx Express domestic shipping service and the destination. The FedEx One Rate price is then calculated based on the packaging type, service selected and distance.

Why should one go for it?

  • More packaging options: The Company has added 5 new FedEx Express boxes to the current line of free packaging for the introduction of FedEx One Rate, along with a new extra large size category. FedEx now offers a total of 12 packing options for all express shipping services. Customers can also now choose from cube shaped boxes for their items.

  • There will be no need to weigh qualifying shipments: weight, fuel surcharges, residential and delivery area, surcharge fees do not alter the base rate for shipments

  • Value-added services including tracking capabilities, customer service, money-back guarantee and no additional charge for declared value of up to USD 100 are also provided.

  • Time-definite delivery:  FedEx One Rate shipping is available with one, two- or three-day U.S. domestic time-definite shipping commitments.
