Upcoming General Rate Increases

While not anyone’s favourite topic, General Rate Increases are a reality of the shipping industry. Our carrier partners regularly review their pricing to ensure it aligns with changes in their cost of doing business. Things like fuel prices, inflation, labour, and other non-negotiable costs change every day, so our partners are introducing the rates below to ensure they remain profitable into the new year. That said, netParcel will always be negotiating the best possible rates to help keep your business competitive.


As of December 26, 2021, UPS services will see an average increase of 2.8%. Additional details are available on the UPS website.

As our other carrier partners share any applicable General Rate Increases, we will be sure to update this post accordingly. Happy shipping!
