January 4th, 2021 marked the day that most carriers implemented rate changes across the board. GRI or General Rate Increases happen every year. Even though 2020 was a year where information and rate surcharges changed depending on demand, restrictions, and holidays.
What do you need to know about the changes in rates in 2021? We’ve got key points here:
Do an audit of your shipping prices and policies. If you offer a flat rate for international orders, check your pricing to ensure it makes sense with the new rates increases. This is a good practice to get into as GRI are common and happen every year!
