They've raised their costs? I had no idea. So, is this going to prompt a general price hike for all courier services or just the big ones? Will small companies such as http://www.unitedmessengers.com be affected? It's definitely going to affect major online stores, though. I wonder if Amazon will still offer their free shipping benefits.

I didn't know they even raised their prices. I guess that shows you how much I ship items. I wonder if the same goes for courier in toronto? I need to be able to ship stuff for a good price. http://www.unitedmessengers.com/
