January 2019 Price Change – Update For Commercial Packages
On November 15, 2018, the Postal Service™ notified the Postal Regulatory Commission of its intent to defer the implementation of the new DIM weighting provisions for Retail and Commercial Priority Mail® and Priority Mail Express®, and Commercial Parcel Select®, for all Zones and Entries. Subject to PRC approval, these DIM weighing provisions will be delayed until June 23, 2019.
Further, effective January 27, 2019, the balloon pricing currently applying to Retail and Commercial Priority Mail Zones 1 – 4 and to Commercial Parcel Select all Zones and Entries will be eliminated, and the current DIM weighting provisions for Retail and Commercial Priority Mail Zones 5 – 9 will be retained.
