Postal Rate Filing May Come Today

Share this content:
A U.S. Postal Service spokesman said that the agency most likely would file its next rate case with the Postal Rate Commission today or tomorrow.


The USPS Board of Governors this month authorized the immediate filing of a request for an overall rate increase of 8.7 percent.


The USPS will ask for a 3-cent increase on the price of a First-Class stamp, which equates to an 8.8 percent increase and a total increase for the class of 8.2 percent. The increase also would be 7.3 percent for Standard Mail; 9 percent for packages; 10 percent for periodicals; 13.5 percent for Priority Mail and 9.7 percent for Express Mail.


Details on the rate cells associated with the proposed increases also would be released today or tomorrow.
