Every time the USPS announces rate changes, all the stakeholders come out of the woodwork, with many of them bemoaning the increases and how it will impact their operation. Relax! Take a deep breath. All told, this rate change will have minimal impact to most, favorable impact to some and not so favorable (but tolerable) changes for others. The positive outcome is that it motivates shippers to evaluate their processes and take action on the many strategies available to lower their costs on small parcel logistics.
