( – FedEx Corp. ( FDX ) Thursday said it will not apply Holiday season surcharges for most of its packages.

The company plans to charge surcharges only for packages that require additional handling or are oversized or unauthorized.

The Holiday season surcharge will be effective November 20, 2017, through December 24, 2017. FedEx Express and FedEx Ground in the U.S. and Canada will increase the surcharge during this period for additional handling by $3 per package, for oversize goods by $25 per package, and for unauthorized shipments by $300 per package.

FedEx’ announcement comes just two months after its main rival UPS announced it plans to apply surcharges for package delivery during Black Friday and the holidays.

UPS said parcels delivered to residences, as well as large packages and those exceeding system weight limits, would face surcharges of up to 97 cents for two-day air services to residential addresses from December 17-23.
