  1. For parcels that originate and destinate in the same BMC service area.
  2. Parcels that measure in combined length and girth:
    • More than 84 inches but not more than 108 inches, and the piece weighs less than 15 pounds, use 15‑pound rates (balloon rate).
    • More than 108 inches but not more than 130 inches, use oversized rates regardless of weight.
  3. Machinable parcels may be eligible for barcoded discount of $0.03 per parcel (50-piece minimum).
  4. Regardless of weight, a parcel that meets any of the criteria in 101.7.2 (for retail) or 401.2.3.2 (for discount) must pay the nonmachinable rate.
  5. Rates include the $1.42 nonmachinable surcharge. The nonmachinable surcharge does not apply to parcels mailed at oversized rates or parcels sent with special handling.
