URSA tables expiring for FedEx Ship Manager is a regularly occurring problem across legacy shipping technology, leaving FedEx customers frustrated at the inability to use the quality carrier services they depend on. The fault is on the legacy vendor and their support team’s ability to keep technology up to date, and not FedEx or its customers.

Taking on the burden of surcharge management

It’s that magical time of year again when most of us are preparing for the holidays, the new year with identifying new resolutions, and ensuring our best that we’re ready to start off the new year strong and prepared for whatever may come our way. Some are also preparing for holiday breaks yet only after situating what’s needed for the new year. Even with the most dedicated intentions, we can’t be completely prepared as we all learned from COVID-19. And that’s okay as we can’t control everything yet we can plan and implement preparations to help us do our best. In the shipping industry, the new year reminds us of contract rate renewals with new rates for shipments and surcharges. An opportunity to negotiate better rates for our businesses and build relationships that will allow us to partner well as we move through the new year together.

All of this planning leans into kickstarting the New Year with a strong and sophisticated business and fulfillment plan. Yet not all businesses get there as anticipated, and this year as conversations loom around inflation and recession there is a larger demand for ensuring costs are managed and the best solutions are easily and correctly utilized for anticipated business flow operations and satisfied customers.
