  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 20 pounds, use 20‑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 barcode 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 rates.
  5. Rates include the $2.87 nonmachinable surcharge. The nonmachinable surcharge does not apply to parcels mailed at oversized rates or parcels sent with special handling.

  1. ECR letters that are not automation-compatible and barcoded (201.3.0) are mailable at the flat-size rates (243.6.4 or 243.6.5). Mailers may not pay ECR flat rates and claim the DDU discount for letter-size pieces.
  2. For pieces weighing more than 3.3 ounces, each piece is subject to both a per piece rate and a per pound rate. Multiply the number of pieces in the mailing by per piece rate. Multiply the number of pounds of the mailing by per pound rate. Add both totals.
  3. Per piece rate for ECR letters and automation letters that weigh more than 3.3 ounces but less than (or equal to) 3.5 ounces includes a discount that equals the applicable flat-size rate (3.3 ounces or less) minus the applicable letter piece rate (3.3 ounces or less).

  1. ECR letters that are not automation-compatible and barcoded (201.3.0) are mailable at the flat-size rates (243.6.4 or 243.6.5). Mailers may not pay ECR flat rates and claim the DDU discount for letter-size pieces.
  2. For pieces weighing more than 3.3 ounces, each piece is subject to both a per piece rate and a per pound rate. Multiply the number of pieces in the mailing by per piece rate. Multiply the number of pounds of the mailing by per pound rate. Add both totals.
  3. Per piece rate for ECR letters and automation letters that weigh more than 3.3 ounces but less than (or equal to) 3.5 ounces includes a discount that equals the applicable flat-size rate (3.3 ounces or less) minus the applicable letter piece rate (3.3 ounces or less).
