Offset Shipping Rate Increases With SEMA Member Benefit

Offsetting shipping-rate increases is just one of the many advantages of becoming a SEMA member.

Carriers have announced their new rate increases, so now it’s more important than ever to take advantage of the SEMA Freight Savings Plan, a valuable member benefit. As a SEMA member, you can save up to 33%* on select FedEx Express services and up to 24% on select FedEx Ground services.

FedEx Express has announced a net average increase of 3.9% on U.S. and U.S. export services, effective January 3, 2011. FedEx Ground and FedEx Home Delivery rates will increase by a net average of 4.9%, also effective January 3, 2011. (UPS has announced an effective 4.9% net average rate increase for both express and parcel services.)
