Episode 122: surcharges for large, heavy goods

UPS is hiking its surcharges for handling large, heavy goods. What will this mean for the delivery and e-commerce sectors? Dean Maciuba, Managing Partner North America for Last Mile Experts, joins me to analyse the implications, including:

  • UPS's new surcharges
  • Why carriers and posts don't want heavy, bulky parcels in the system
  • How heavy and bulky parcels are delivered in the USA
  • Opportunities in two-person delivery, in particular for XPO Logistics
  • Vehicles being used for two-person delivery
  • Implications for the logistics network and warehouses
  • What Amazon is doing in delivery of heavy goods
  • Could postal operators compete effectively in this business?
