USPS Rate Increase Takes Effect August 20th
USPS Rate Increases
Reminder: USPS Rate Increase takes effect August 20, 2017. The impact is most significant on IPA and ISAL, the USPS’ wholesale international mail services. The cost of sending letters via of IPA and ISAL and flats via ISAL are increasing substantially.These new increases are in addition to the recently implemented January 2017 increase of 3.5%-5%. Also this mid-year rate change means three price increases in a 12–month period! We know this is a burden to customers using ISAL and IPA and therefore may be harmful to USPS revenues.
