The USPS filed their mailing and shipping rate changes on October 10, 2018, to the Postal Regulatory Commission (PRC). These changes—affecting everything from First-Class Mail® to Priority Mail®—will be reviewed for approval by the PRC before they are scheduled to take effect on January 27, 2019. While waiting for confirmation from the PRC, here are the most popular mailing and shipping products and how they would be affected under the proposed rate changes.
Mailing and shipping rates will be raised but you can leverage your mailing system for discounted metered mail rates and look into a shipping system to get Commercial Based Pricing. In fact, you're incentivized to do just that! Remember, the USPS still has an edge over other carriers because it does not add surcharges for fuel, residential delivery, or regular Saturday or holiday season delivery.
