For FedEx Internal Use Only Revised 03/06/08 1 What s New in v FedEx Ship Manager Server (FSMS) v offers a variety of new and improved features to simplify your shipping needs and speed up your processing time. Pricing Change for FedEx Express and FedEx Ground With the release, FedEx Ground and FedEx Home Delivery services will use a dimensional weight to calculate pricing for all shipments. Certain FedEx clients may continue to use the current oversize rating logic. FedEx Express services will begin to use an oversize package rating logic that is based on the greater of the package s actual rounded weight or the dimensional weight. To implement the change, the current minimum billable weight (MBW) will be replaced with a zero (0) at the customer level. This effectively eliminates the MBW comparison that is used to calculate the rate today. The Oversize charge will increase from $30 to $40 (USD) with the implementation of this change. The above pricing changes will be implemented for the following areas and include Transborder Distribution (TD) and Multiweight services: to (50 states) to Puerto Rico to Canada (International) Earned Discount Rates Version now allows Server customers to receive rate quotes that include their account-specific earned discount rates.
