Keep your business shipments moving and on time this year! The USPS is planning a temporary price adjustment for key package products for the 2022 peak holiday season. This temporary rate adjustment is similar to ones in past years that help cover extra handling costs to ensure a successful peak season. If approved, the temporary rates will go into effect on Oct. 2 and run until Jan. 22, 2023.
The planned price changes include:
Priority Mail and Priority Mail Express:
First-Class Package Service, Parcel Select Ground, and USPS Retail Ground:
The Post Office said the temporary price increase will keep the agency competitive with other shippers — many of which also typically add surcharges during peak seasons — and help cover the extra costs that are anticipated during the peak holiday season.
