What are accessorial charges?
Defined as an extra charge, such as a destination charge or fees that may apply to certain shipments. These added charges are extra services you can add to your shipping selection to meet a complete range of shipping needs but which are not always available or necessary.
There are over 70 Accessorial Charges and Fees applied by all primary national carriers
The 5 Top Charges and Fees are:
Address Correction Fees (typically exceeds $10.00 per package)
Return Fees (cost of shipment plus cost of return plus incurred fees)
Rerouting (varies based on amount of carrier rerouting)
Package Tracking (asking the company to track your package)
Refusal Fee (recipient refuses delivery, cost of refusal fee, return fees plus additional accessorial fees)
