The United States Postal Service (USPS) has notified the Postal Regulatory Commission (PRC) of proposed price changes for its shipping services products, scheduled to take effect in January 2016. The filing does not include any price increase for first class mail or any other postal service mailing product such as the Forever stamp.
USPS’s average shipping services price change is 9.5% which results in an average shipping price of less than US$5.50 per shipment across all shipping products. The average price increase for priority mail is 9.8%. The new prices, if approved, represent the first price increase in more than three years for commercial priority mail.
The PRC will review the prices before they are scheduled to become effective on January 17, 2016. The complete USPS price filing with the new prices for all shipping services products can be found on the PRC website under the daily listings section.
