USPS Seeks Competitive Edge for Standard Mail Parcels

 

Today, the Postal Service filed a request with the Postal Regulatory Commission (PRC) to transfer commercial Standard Mail Fulfillment Parcels from the market-dominant product list to the competitive product list.

 

The strategy for Standard Mail small parcels redesign is included in the exigent price case that we filed with the PRC on July 6. The redesign breaks this category of mail into two significant and distinct customer segments; marketing parcels and fulfillment parcels.

 

If the reclassification we are seeking with today’s filing is approved, fulfillment parcels would become a lightweight category of Parcel Select.

 

We will use DMM Advisory to keep you updated on the progress of this request.
