USPS

Update: Shipware has written an overview of the USPS rate increases: USPS 2022 Price Increase & Impact on Shippers

The USPS has announced its proposed peak holiday season surcharges with effective dates between Oct 2 – Jan 22, 2023.

From Gordon Glazer, USPS expert (https://lnkd.in/gAQsiTwn):

“USPS released proposed peak season surcharges that frankly seem pretty reasonable compared to what FedEx has proposed.

While there are lots of numbers to look at most shippers will be concerned with “Commercial Rates” for:

  • Priority Mail zones 1-4 up to 10 Lbs $.25
  • Priority Mail zones 5-9 up to 10 Lbs $.80
  • Parcel Select Ground zones 1-4, up to 10 Lbs. $.25
  • Parcel Select Ground zones 5-9, up to 10 Lbs. $.40
  • First Class Package Service zones 1-4 $.25
  • First Class Package Service zones 5-9 $.40

Postal consolidators will induct via Parcel Select – usually at the DDU (local P.O.) for most of their packages.

The surcharge this year is $0.25 and, if inducted at the DSCF or DNDC, will be $0.75.

No surcharge this year for PSL (under a pound), USPS Connect Local and Parcel Return service.

The proposed effective dates are Oct 2 – Jan 22, 2023.”
