Dear SMC Members:
Mailers rarely look forward to Postal Service price adjustments. But the 2017 Postal Service rate adjustment could bring good news for free paper publishers that use Standard Enhanced Carrier Route Saturation Mail to distribute their papers.
Dialog between Postal Service leaders on marketing, pricing, and costing, has taken place for years. During its July 2016 MTAC meetings, and in discussions SMC has had with Postal Service pricing personnel thereafter, the Postal Service has confirmed that it intends to raise the allowable weight, by increasing the Standard Mail flat piece price weight break, from 3.3 ounces to 4 ounces.
