On Friday, October 16th, the United States Postal Service (USPS) filed a notice with the Postal Regulatory Commission (PRC) for a proposed rate increase. The PRC has since approved the request and the postage rate changes will go into effect on January 17, 2016.
A few things to note:
- The changes are primarily for Priority Mail and Parcel Services.
- There are no changes for First-Class Mail or Standard Mail rates of letter or flat sized pieces.
