USPS Rolls Out Increases This Month

02 Jan 2014 7:38 AM | Karen Summers (Administrator)
USPS Rolls Out Increases This Month. The Postal Regulatory Commission (PRC), the governing body that approves U.S. Postal Service rate increases, has approved a special "exigent" rate increase for USPS market dominant products. When the new Postal Service Shipping Services prices take effect, customers will see an overall price increase of 2.4 percent. How will these new rate increases impact your business?

Market dominant products include First Class Mail letters, First Class Mail flats/large envelopes, postcards, Standard Mail (bulk mail), periodicals, Media Mail and Library Mail. Don't miss the discount for METERED mail.
