The ground delivery offering has been the target of controversial changes that would impact key shipping partners like DHL eCommerce and Pitney Bowes.

The U.S. Postal Service is proposing a sharp price increase for its Parcel Select offering — the target of controversial changes that would impact key shipping partners and their customers.

The agency wants rates for Parcel Select to increase by 25% on average on July 14, according to a notice filed with the Postal Regulatory Commission on Friday. The low-cost ground delivery product is used by consolidators like DHL eCommerce and Pitney Bowes, which handle and send customers’ parcels to Postal Service facilities for final-mile delivery.

The specific price hikes that Parcel Select users will see depends on where they enter volume in the agency’s network.
