I go on several other sites and I have seen posts about ups brokerage fees being outrageous, and usually it seems to be the canadians who are SCREAMING!! Are these fees really ups taking advantage, or are fedex and dhl fees in the same ballpark. I thought I read somewhere where the post office doesnt have to charge these fees, for some reason or another. Seems as if nobody at ups knows what these fees are for or why they are so high. If you google the topic there are MANY customers that wont use us for the cross border stuff, and on top of it others who wont use us period mostly because of the high claim issues. These seem to be 2 large issues with customers, especially the ebayers and other related sites. Does anybody know the real story behind these fees. I know ups has one of, if not, the largest custom brokerage business in the world, so it seems they have the technology and other "business related" things to do the border stuff cost effective...so whats up?? How much business is ups loosing from the damage side of things also???
