Sendle, the popular easy-to-use shipping carrier for micro and small businesses, announced that this year it will add peak season surcharges from October 3, 2022 to January 22, 2023 on all shipments on the Standard plan.
This is the first time the carrier will be adding peak season surcharges to its plans but since it relied on USPS and other third-party shippers to transport shipments, its costs are significantly impacted during this busy time of the year.
The good news is that Sendle will still absorb a lot of the surcharges themselves to help small businesses stay competitive during the holiday season.
“Peak surcharges have become commonplace in the shipping industry, as the demand on our networks swells over the busy holiday shopping season.”
“But to make sure you’re getting the best rates out there, we’re gulping up some of the fees, and keeping our surcharges as low, and simple, as possible,” Sendle said in its announcement.
