Comment Period Reminder Proposal to Revise Service Standards for First-Class Mail, Periodicals, and Standard Mail

 

The Federal Register advance notice of federal rule making, highlighted in an earlier communication from Susan LaChance, USPS Vice President Consumer & Industry Affairs, would revise service standards, eliminating the expectation of overnight service for First-Class Mail and Periodicals, narrowing the two-day delivery range, and enlarging the three-day delivery range. A major effect of the proposal would be to facilitate a significant consolidation of the Postal Service's processing and transportation networks.

 

The comment period closes on October 21. Please send any comments to the special email address created for the mailing industry: industryfeedback@usps.gov.
