As we approach the 2018 Holiday Season, Rakuten Super Logistics will be here to provide you with the best possible service. We also wish to keep you informed of shipping surcharges for UPS and FedEx that may affect your holiday season. As is the case with any shipping surcharges or rate changes, RSL encourages you to review your shipping strategy to ensure you are receiving the best possible rates. 

In addition, please note that to cover the incremental cost of fuel, there will be an additional fuel surcharge for all shipments. This additional surcharge will be in place for all shipments sent from October 1st – December 31st and will be revisited at the end of 2018.
