PRC Releases Approval For USPS 2017 Price Increase

Postal Bld 2On Tuesday, November 15, 2016, the Postal Regulatory Commission (PRC) issued its decision regarding the Postal Service’s 2017 Market Dominant Price Case.   The PRC approved implementation of the January 22, 2017 proposed price changes for: First-Class Mail, Standard Mail, Periodical, and Package Service.   Concluding that, “the proposed classification changes for these classes are consistent with applicable law and regulations.”

However, the PRC did not provide its approval on Special Services.   This category includes services such as Address Correction, BRM, Shipper Paid Forwarding, and instead stated, “the Commission will address the proposed Special Services price adjustments and classification changes in a separate order.”
