New Postal Rates Approved – How will it impact budgets?

i Jan 9th No Comments by

It has just been announced that the Postal Regulatory Commission has approved an exigent increase in pricing that will impact most mail by 6%.  Back in the November I had written about this as a potential, but thought now would be a good time to go over what we believe to be the specifics of the increase.

For the past 16 years, I have been creating comparison charts for my clients that go over the changes in rates to show how it will affect budgets.  The reason that I do this is that when the USPS talks about a 4.3% increase, this is overall.  Based on the type of mail you do, the increase could be higher or lower.  You need to look at the class, weight, zone, density and special services required to see the true impact.  Also, when you look at the new rate charts provided by the USPS, they typically will not show the level of detail needed (Previous and new rates, side by side) to see these differences.

The remainder of this article will look at the main classes of mail and will break down the specific increases.  Hopefully this will help you budget for the increase by seeing how it will impact your mail.
