USPS April 2016 Rate Change : Removal of Exigent Surcharge.

We recently posted a USPS Industry Alert article titled: Postal Service Exigent Surcharge Pricing to End April 10. For those who have not had the time to read the entire article, here is a brief summary of the good news for individuals and businesses:

On February 25, 2016, the United States Postal Service provided notice to the Postal Regulatory Commission (PRC) that it will remove the exigent surcharge that’s currently in place. Barring any action from Congress, the exigent surcharge will be removed effective April 10, 2016.

Listed below are some of the changes to expect for First Class Mail:
Additional ounce rate for Single-Piece (letters/flats) to decrease from $0.22 to $0.21
The 2nd Ounce Free program continues.
Single piece stamped mail to decrease from $0.49 to $0.47
Postcards to decrease from $0.35 to $0.34
One ounce flats to decrease from $0.98 to $0.94
International letters to decrease from $1.20 to $1.15

Commercial prices will also be decreasing. A complete listing of the new prices, which will be effective April 10, is available at www.usps.com.
