USPS Rate Changes to Impact Priority Mail, Priority Mail Express, and/or Parcel Select

Posted by:

The last year has been full of numerous USPS changes, particularly related to rate changes. June 23rd, 2019 will again show changes to USPS rates, particularly impacting the shipping of packages using Priority Mail, Priority Mail Express, or Parcel Select (if using NeoShip shipping software, you will automatically be provided the required information).

What is changing?

Priority Mail, Priority Mail Express, and Parcel Select Packages will now be priced based on Dimensional Weight for all zones (Local and zones 1-9). First Class International Mail is also going to be experiencing a price change. Lastly, Flats that exceed 15.995 ounces will now be called First-Class Package International Service (FCPIS).

If you happen to ship Priority Mail packages and are not presently using NeoShip software or commercial rates, there will be more manual work than previously as well. Going forward, it will now be necessary to manually calculate shipping weight to determine the package cost, and enter that information into your mail machine.

To learn more details regarding this, feel free to email marketing@cms-colorado.com and request the USPS Rate Change email sent earlier this month. You can also call 303-761-0681 for further information. To find more about calculating Dimensional Weight (DIM) information here.
