The increase will be implemented on the company’s CNW 599 tariff and will apply to general less-than-truckload rates, minimum charges and accessorial or supplemental fees for special services for LTL shipments moving within the United States and Canada, as well as cross-border shipments moving between the U.S., Puerto Rico and Canada, the company said.
