USPS Enhancing Parcel Competitiveness with Product Reclassification and New Extra Service

without comments

From the DMM Advisory:

Two filings yesterday at the Postal Regulatory Commission (PRC) are a part of continuing efforts to enhance our parcel offerings in the highly competitive shipping marketplace

One filing moves Commercial First-Class Mail® Parcels – which are largely used for lightweight merchandise fulfillment – from the market-dominant product list, and adds “Lightweight Commercial Parcels” to the competitive product list. This move does not affect retail single-piece First-Class Mail Parcels.

We also filed to introduce Adult Signature service, allowing Express Mail®, Priority Mail®, and Parcel Select® commercial and online shippers to request the verified signature of an adult upon delivery.

We’ll use DMM Advisory to keep you updated on the progress of our filings.
