Unishippers Provides B2B Shipping Tips to Help Small to Mid-Size Businesses Stay Competitive Despite New Pricing
September 12, 2014 // // Salt Lake City, UT – Companies large and small will soon be seeing a rate increase for ground shipments using major U.S. carriers.

Early predictions say that once the new pricing goes into effect, more than 30 percent of all ground shipments will be affected.
