The U.S. Postal Service today filed a request with the Postal Regulatory Commission (PRC) for a 1.966% rate adjustment based on the Consumer Price Index. This increase applies only to market-dominant products, such as Standard Mail, that is the primary postage class of direct mailers.
USPS has asked that the increase take effect on April 26 and estimates that it will generate an additional $900 million in contribution—or net income—on an annualized basis. Should the PRC agree to meet the Postal Service's timeline, contribution for USPS's fiscal year 2015, which concludes at the end of September, will be around $400 million. The CPI case includes a separate pricing structure for Standard Mail run through the Flats Sequencing System. Under the proposal, FSS pricing will no longer exist for carrier route, high density, or high density plus categories.
In their place a five-digit carrier route pallet price will be created. Rates for Standard Flats will increase by 2.465% Prices of Forever stamps will remain at 49 cents in the new rate base. International letters will increase by a nickel to $1.20 and postcards will go up a penny to 35 cents.
I抦 impressed, I have to say. Actually hardly ever do I encounter a blog that抯 both educative and entertaining, and let me inform you, you will have hit the nail on the head. Your idea is outstanding; the issue is one thing that not sufficient persons are speaking intelligently about. I am very blissful that I stumbled throughout this in my search for one thing relating to this.
There are some attention-grabbing time limits on this article however I don抰 know if I see all of them middle to heart. There is some validity but I'll take maintain opinion till I look into it further. Good article , thanks and we would like more! Added to FeedBurner as properly
The subsequent time I learn a weblog, I hope that it doesnt disappoint me as much as this one. I imply, I do know it was my option to learn, however I actually thought youd have one thing interesting to say. All I hear is a bunch of whining about something that you could possibly repair if you happen to werent too busy on the lookout for attention.
