Postal News in 30 Seconds

USPS filed to gain approval from the PRC for a zero percent price increase for 2016. This would include First Class, Standard, and Periodical Mail. The decision factors in the 2016 Postal Promotions too. PRC has until December 31st to make a decision or come back with questions/recommendations.

Expect USPS shipping fees to increase 9.6% starting January 17th, 2016.

In April 2016 the exigent surcharge roll-back will expire. If it does expire, which is certainly questionable, you’d actually see a 4.3% decrease in postal fees.

More news on these and many other issues to follow!

Make it a great day!
