(FOX 17) — Sending a gift may cost you a little more this year.

UPS plans to raise shipping rates by almost 5%.

This raise will apply to U.S. ground and air shipments and international services.

Air-freight rates in the U.S. mainland, Puerto Rico, and Canada will increase to around the same amount.

The increase will help pay continuing expansion and improvements.
