Lets End De Facto Rate Increases, Mailers Plead – Direct Marketing News

without comments

Upset over Postal Service procedure in which operational changes translate into de facto rate increases for certain classes of mail, a coalition of mailer associations filed a petition with the Postal Regulatory Commission (PRC) to address the problem yesterday.

At the heart of the groups petition is a desire for the PRC to define the legal term de minimis, literally “trivial,” in relation to changes made in postal operations. Currently, the Commission defers to the Postal Services estimation of a de minimis increase in rates when instituting a change. Mailers argue, however, that attendant costs that go along with procedural alterations can be exorbitant, or even prohibitive.
