The United States Postal Service (USPS) announced that it filed notice with the Postal Regulatory Commission (PRC) on August 14 of a temporary price change to take effect Oct. 18, 2020. USPS Said that the planned temporary price adjustments are in response to increased expenses and heightened demand for online shopping package volume due to the coronavirus pandemic and expected holiday e-commerce. The USPS is planning to maintain this time-limited price increase on all commercial domestic competitive package volume from Oct. 18 until Dec. 27, 2020. Retail prices and international products will be unaffected.
The PRC will review the prices before they are scheduled to take effect on Oct.18, 2020.
