New, higher rates for FedEx ground and express shipping started Monday.

Price increases average about 6.9% and up to 7.9% for freight.

The company announced the hike in September when it announced it would trim its budget and operations by about $500 million.


There will also be an 8% increase in the late payment fee for U.S. FedEx Express and FedEx ground.

This comes after a slowing global economy and lower demand.
