In an order issued on November 9th, the Postal Regulatory Commission(PRC) approved the Postal Service’s proposed prices for market-dominant products. In its 63-page decision, the PRC found that the proposed rates do not violate the price cap and that the workshare discounts meet statutory requirements; proposed classification changes also were approved.
Earlier the commission also approved USPS price changes for competitive products.
As a result, the price changes announced last month by the USPS will be implemented as planned on January 21, 2018. Below is a price comparison chart for First Class Rates. For a downloadable PDF of the January First Class Rates, click here.
