International Shipping Simplified
Quick, Easy, Convenient, Goes International

 

In today's Federal Register we published for comment our proposal to simplify our international shipping options and make it easier for you to use our products for your international shipping needs. The changes align our international products with our well-known and trusted domestic products – Express Mail, Priority Mail, and First-Class Mail. The Federal Register notice is intended to provide you with the opportunity to comment on and make suggestions regarding the proposed changes. You have 30 days to make comments.

 

The following table illustrates the international product simplifications:

 

Current 

Proposed

Global Express Guaranteed (document)

Global Express Guaranteed (non-document)

Global Express Guaranteed

Global Express Mail

Express Mail International

Global Priority Mail

Airmail Parcel Post

Economy Parcel Post

Priority Mail International

Airmail Letter Post

Economy Letter Post

First-Class Mail International

 

In addition to the product changes, we are restructuring international mail prices. The international changes would become effective when we change our domestic prices in May 2007.

 

We welcome your feedback and encourage you to comment on our proposal. Send written comments on or before January 19, 2007 to the Manager of Mailing Standards, U.S. Postal Service, 475 L’Enfant Plaza SW RM 3436, Washington DC 20260-3436.
