An approximate 7% increase on First-Class Mail Parcels (FCMP) weighing 1-3 ounces, will be implemented by the United States Postal Service (USPS) starting August 28th, 2016.
|Parcel (1-3 oz.)||Current Rate||New Rate|
|First-Class Mail Parcel Retail||$2.45||$2.62|
|First-Class Mail Parcels containing keys or identification devices||$3.27||$3.44|
Rate changes will correct an anomaly created with this past January’s rate increase, which resulted in retail prices for 1-3 ounce FCMP being lower than Commercial prices for similar items. Commercial Base Prices are normally lower than retail prices.
These price adjustments are USPS planned rates changes for August.
