FedEx Freight announces the launch of the FedEx Freight® box in the U.S.

MEMPHIS, Tenn., July 2016 – FedEx Freight announces the launch of the FedEx Freight® box in the U.S. This new flat-rate1 freight box option makes transporting less-than-truckload (LTL) shipments simple, with improved flexibility, increased security, and best of all — no freight classification. The FedEx Freight® box packaging is included in the flat-rate cost2 and comes in two sizes — a standard size freight box that requires a pallet to ship, and a smaller freight box with an integrated pallet. The freedom to choose your freight box makes freight shipping accessible for businesses, no matter the size.

“Here at FedEx we strive to support growth and innovation by continually improving the services and solutions we offer to our customers,” says Raj Subramaniam, Executive Vice President of Marketing and Communications at FedEx Services. “Our new FedEx Freight® box is a solution that will help small and medium-sized businesses with their freight shipping needs and provide an extra level of security and protection for all customers.”

“We understand that our customers need to focus on growing their businesses, not on navigating a complex LTL shipping process,” adds Sean Healy, Senior Vice President of Strategic Planning and Engineering at FedEx Freight. “The FedEx Freight® box is a new, simplified solution that makes it easier for customers of any size to ship LTL by giving them a more parcel-like shipping experience.”

So, if you are just not familiar with LTL freight classification or you are a regular LTL shipper that simply wants to save some time — you now have a new option. Learn more about how to get started with FedEx Freight® box, get free supplies and box rates at fedex.com/freightbox.

FedEx Freight introduces two new zone-based pricing options

FedEx Freight is also introducing two new zone-based rate alternatives that will provide customers more options to help them find the pricing that best fits their business needs. Some discounts in the less-than-truckload(LTL) industry are reaching very high levels, so the new FedEx Freight zone lite and FedEx Freight zone lite plus feature recalibrates list rates and lower discounts to provide overall net rates consistent with other FedEx Freight offerings. Also, the zone lite plus rates are fuel inclusive and remove the need to calculate fuel surcharge percentages that fluctuate with the U.S. Department of Energy’s price of diesel on a regular basis. With that, customers on the zone lite plus rates will not have to worry about additional fuel surcharges unless the national price of diesel fuel exceeds $3 per gallon. Customers who are interested in these rates can contact their FedEx Freight account executive or contact FedEx Freight customer service at 1.866.393.4585.
