In response to a request from member credit unions to assist in reducing the cost for overnight shipping by negotiating a volume pricing contract the Association shopped a number of providers and came back with a fantastic deal. FedEx was strongest both in terms of price and in terms of reputation and service. The pricing they offered for this "group rate" was 40% - 65% off of their regular rates. The discount applies to everything credit unions ship, even international. Participating credit unions are saving thousands of dollars and nearly 65% off of previous shipping expense. Act now to take advantage of FedEx's discount pricing. There's no expense to join, the start-up or transition is simple and you can switch to another provider at any time. We need as many credit unions as possible to participate to ensure that all of us can continue to receive this volume pricing from FedEx and to give us the opportunity to negotiate volume pricing discounts for other services in the future. The pricing offered by FedEx was based on a certain volume of shipping by participating credit unions and they have indicated that the pricing cannot be continued if the volume levels do not increase.
