On August 29, 2021, and again on July 10, 2022, the USPS® had the largest rate increases in over 10 years, and the combined 12-month increase is daunting at 10-30%! It also impacts the largest mailers the most due to higher percentage increases for production mail categories.
In this article, we will go over these changes, educate you on how rates are calculated and provide savings strategies that can help minimize the financial impact.
The USPS® approved the largest rate increase in over 10 years, and it is the second increase of 2021!
I am going to start out with a blanket statement based on years of customer research: 99% of medium to large organizations have limited to no visibility to their mail spends across the enterprise.
For the past 21 years, I have been creating comparison charts for our clients that go over the changes in rates to show how it will affect budgets.
As an industry insider, my goal is to bring to you the best ideas that can reduce costs and streamline your mailing application.
