Ground shipping is one of the cheaper options utilized by many e-commerce retailers for delivering orders to customers. Some will absorb these shipping costs completely or offer a small flat shipping fee while customers wait 3+ days for their package to arrive. Orders online aren’t always urgent, and customers can appreciate the chance to save on shipping, even if it means waiting a bit longer. Below is a ground shipping rates comparison of the 3 major carriers. For the current 2023 USPS rates, visit our USPS 2023 Shipping Rate Changes: Flat Rate, Priority, First Class, w/Tables blog!

*Rates shown for USPS Priority Mail® Commercial Plus Pricing, FedEx Ground® Standard Pricing with residential and fuel surcharges, and UPS Ground® Daily Rates with residential and fuel surcharges.
It’s important to note that we used USPS Priority Mail for 3+ day, although the vast majority of Priority Mail packages arrive to their destination within 2-3 days. UPS and FedEx Ground also typically arrive within 3 days, with the occasional delivery window extension that can go beyond 3 days, although it is rare.
