Postal Service Rate Changes


Changes from 2007 listed below:


What is the United States Postal Service trying to accomplish?


The common thread running through this rate change is simple:  The United States Postal Service is looking to better align postal rates with the actual costs to process and deliver mail on a piece-by-piece basis.  In basic terms, you will be given incentives to:


  • Create mail pieces that are compatible with the United States Postal Service processing systems
  • Improve address quality
  • Deposit letters, flats and parcels closer to their destinations


Through these changes both you and the United States Postal Service will benefit from a more efficient approach to overall mail preparation and delivery – one that will provide stability, value and added economies well into the future.


What you can expect once the new rates take effect Monday, May 14, 2007


  • Previously, postage costs were based primarily on weight.  The new rate structure puts a greater emphasis on size, shape and weight.
  • Lower costs for an “additional ounce” will create new opportunities in many cases.
  • The postal service is making a big push to decrease “undeliverable as addressed” mail and will make it more affordable for you to updated addresses.
  • Presorting remains the key to lowering expenses.
  • Permanent, flat-rate pricing for priority mail envelopes and boxes provides greater value anywhere and everywhere.
