Be First: Get the eCommerce Seller’s Guide to 2017 Shipping Rate Changes

Available: December 2016

In 2017, all the major carriers—the United States Postal Service (USPS), FedEx, and UPS—are rolling out price increases; regardless of which carrier(s) or service(s) you use, these changes will affect you. Pre-Order the guide now – to automatically receive the first copies via email PDF when it’s complete (we are waiting on the PRC to approve USPS proposed changes).

It’s the only resource you’ll need to:

  • Understand and compare the changes across all major carriers: We will provide a side-by-side comparison of the changes and guidance on how to interpret them for your business.
  • Find the most cost-effective carrier for a given set of shipping parameters: Through a set of easy to use tables, you will be able to quickly determine what carrier provides the best pricing for a package based on its weight, destination zone, and delivery time (e.g. overnight, 2-3 day, and greater than 3-day), and whether there are alternative services (e.g. USPS First-Class Mail®, USPS Priority Mail Flat Rate® or USPS Priority Mail Regional Rate® boxes) that may be even more cost effective.
  • See how the changes impact real-world eCommerce businesses: We’re analyzing proprietary, anonymous ShippingEasy data now to calculate the impact of the planned rate increases for specific shipping situations—and how the impact can be mitigated by looking at alternative carriers and/or services.
