Update of Central Mail Newsletter

Submitted by Jay Henning

It was noted in the April 2015 edition of the K-State Carrier, Central Mail Services newsletter, that the United States Postal Service, USPS, is having a price increase. The price increase has been postponed. This information was available after the newsletter had been finalized. Read part of the official release from the USPS here:

"While proposed prices for First Class Mail, Special Services and Competitive Products have all been approved by the PRC (Postal Regulatory Commission), prices for the Standard Mail, Periodicals and Package Services classes have twice been remanded back to the Postal Service by the PRC for a wide array of technical and other concerns that are primarily related to the complexities of the price cap and the manner in which it is calculated. Rather than subject our customers to a piecemeal implementation of our new prices, the Postal Service has decided that the best course of action would be to wait until our complete price proposal is approved by our regulator. We have no desire to saddle our valued customers with the additional costs and burdens of a staggered implementation while we work with the PRC to obtain final approval of our remaining prices. We will set a new implementation date when we propose new prices for Standard Mail, Periodicals, and Package Services in response to the PRC's March 18 remand order."
