Address to submit a claim form (REQUIRED):
Details: The UPS shipping settlement will resolve a class action lawsuit, entitled Barber Auto Sales v. United Parcel Service, Inc., that alleges UPS inaccurately measured the dimensions and weight of customers' packages, resulting in a higher shipping charge.
The UPS shipping class action lawsuit settlement arose out of the fact that UPS allows customers to submit their own package measurements (e.g.; height, length, width and weight) when shipping, but reserves the right in its customer contract to audit package measurements to make sure they are correct. If UPS deems the measurements are incorrect, it adjusts shipping charges based on its own measurements. According to the UPS class action lawsuit, UPS inaccurately adjusted some package measurements based on faulty measurements for some shipments between 2006 and 2011.
Class Members of the UPS shipping class action settlement include anyone who shipped packages with UPS between May 15, 2006 and August 29, 2011 and had a shipping charge adjusted upwards as a result of UPS's audit of package dimensions.
UPS denies any wrongdoing but has agreed to set up a $2 million class action lawsuit settlement fund to pay out account credits or payments to Class Members. The amount of such credits or payments cannot be determined at this time, but will be based on the number of people who file valid claims. UPS has also established a $10 million Compensation Fund for account credit or refunds for future upward adjustments.
To receive your account credit or refund under the UPS class action settlement, you must submit a claim form postmarked no later than 30 days from the date of the Final Order and Judgment, which will be on or after the Final Approval and Fairness Hearing currently set for December 5, 2011.
