May 12 Pricing Change New Mailing Standards

 

On www.usps.com/prices we posted advance copies of two Federal Register notices supporting May 12 mailing standards changes. The first is for domestic Shipping Services Express Mail, Priority Mail, Parcel Select, and Parcel Return Service and details the requirements to qualify for new commercial base and commercial volume pricing. 

 

The second is for International Priority Airmail (IPA) service and International Surface Air Lift (ISAL) service. These changes reflect the new international shape-based standards. The new prices for IPA and ISAL follow the existing piece and pound pricing structure. In addition, we are adopting new country price groups for First-Class Mail International M-Bag Direct Sacks to One Addressee service. These changes reflect the nine country price groups for First-Class Mail International.

 

We will post an advance copy of the Federal Register notice supporting mailing standards changes for international Shipping Services and details the requirements to qualify for new commercial base and commercial volume pricing as soon as it is available.

 

We will use the DMM Advisory to notify you when these notices appear in the Federal Register.
