The U.S. Postal Service served notice to the Postal Regulatory Commission today that it would delay implementation of price and classification changes for First Class Mail and competitive products until further notice. USPS last week announced it would postpone the April 26 implementation date for its proposed changes for market dominant products, which were twice rejected by the PRC.
The Postal Board of Governors’ choice to delay the implementation “was primarily motivated by a desire to minimize the potential adverse impacts that might result from staggering the implementation of new prices,” according to the notice.
The Postal Service reported that it will announce a new implementation date for all affected mail products when it submits the revised rates to the PRC.
