    UPS Wins Canadian Dismissal of Group Suit Over Customs Fees - Bloomberg

    United Parcel Service Inc., the world’s biggest package-delivery company, won dismissal of a lawsuit filed by Canadian customers who complained they were improperly charged duties on parcels coming from abroad.

    UPS, based in Atlanta, was sued over duties and fees it charges for bringing items across the Canadian border after Robert MacFarlane was charged a total of C$41.09, after having paid on the Internet for an amplification device for telephones from an Arizona-based company. The charges included C$28.30 in customs fees, a C$5.85 disbursement fee and a C$4.25 cash-on- delivery fee.
