The USPS® announced the upcoming Rate Change, due to take effect on Sunday, September 3, 2017. Unlike previous Rate Changes, which encompassed a number of rate adjustments, this rate change only impacts one service, First Class Parcel.

 

First Class Parcel is being reclassified as First Class Package Service Retail. The major impact is the change in rate category from Market Dominant to Competitive, allowing the USPS to adjust the rate according to market conditions, rather than the CPI (Consumer Price Index.) In addition, this better aligns the package services as both retail and commercial now share the same product name. Continue below to see how this change impacts customers and dealers.

The rate change only impacts packages weighing up to 13 oz.  The following changes will go into effect on September 3rd 2017:
