USPS recommends new prices for Parcel Select

May 10, 2024


USPS has notified the Postal Regulatory Commission of Parcel Select price changes to take effect Sunday, July 14.

The proposed adjustments were approved by the USPS governors this week.

If favorably reviewed by the commission, the new rates will include a 25 percent increase for Parcel Select, which allows high-volume shippers to enter packages for regional delivery through the USPS network.

As a strategic part of the Delivering for America 10-year plan, these proposed changes will support efforts to create a revitalized Postal Service capable of achieving the organization’s public service mission — providing a nationwide, integrated network for the delivery of mail and packages at least six days a week in a cost-effective and financially sustainable manner over the long term.

The Postal Service continues to offer USPS Ground Advantage, which provides a simple, reliable and affordable way to ship packages in 2-5 business days across the contiguous United States.

USPS Ground Advantage offers $100 insurance included in the price, as well as free pickup on mail carriers’ routes.

The Postal Regulatory Commission, also known as the PRC, will review the changes before they are scheduled to take effect.

The complete USPS price filing can be found on the PRC’s website. Price tables are also available on the Postal Explorer website.

Last month, USPS notified the commission of mailing services price changes to take effect July 14.
