Load Leveling – Call to Action – Comment to the Federal Register Notice

with one comment

The USPS has a page where Federal Register notices are posted, here
http://pe.usps.com/FederalRegisterNotices.asp
However, you won’t find the Federal Register notice pertaining to the Load Leveling plan there.

Go here to see the USPS plan:
https://www.federalregister.gov/articles/2014/01/03/2013-31442/service-standards-for-destination-sectional-center-facility-rate-standard-mail

“The Postal Service seeks public comment on proposed revisions to the service standards for Standard Mail that is eligible for Destination Sectional Center Facility (DSCF) rates. The revisions would change the service standard (a) from three days to four days for Standard Mail pieces that are eligible for a DSCF rate and that are properly accepted before the day zero Critical Entry Time on a Friday or Saturday, and (b) from four days to five days for DSCF Standard Mail properly accepted at the SCF in San Juan, Puerto Rico and destined to the United States Virgin Islands, and properly accepted DSCF Standard Mail destined to American Samoa.”

That’s right, raise rates – both CPI and Exigency rates – and cut service.

Here’s where the CALL TO ACTION comes in.  COMMENT!  Write up a couple of paragraphs on what you think of this USPS plan how it could affect your business, and how it will affect your companies’ future use of mail.  It is critical for everyone to speak up now.  Don’t wait until the last minute.

Comments must be received on or before February 3, 2014.

Written comments should be mailed to the Manager, Industry Engagement and Outreach, United States Postal Service, 475 L’Enfant Plaza SW., Room 4107, Washington, DC 20260-4107, or transmitted by email to industryfeedback@usps.com.

I suggest that you send a copy of your comments to the Postal Regulatory Commission Public Representative on this case:

Anne Siarnacki
901 New York Avenue, NW Suite 200
Washington, DC 20268

e-mail:  anne.siarnacki@prc.gov

Raising rates and cutting services is no way to grow a business.

    I mean Load Leveling – Call to Action – Commentt to the Federal
    Register Notice – Intelisent Postzl Affairs Blog is a
    little vanilla. You might glance at Yahoo’s front page and see hhow they create
    article titles to get people to open the links.

    You might try adding a video or a picture or twwo to grab
    people interested about everything’ve got to say.
    Just my opinion, it could make your posts a little
    bit more interesting.
