On April 16, the U.S. Postal Service served notice to the Postal Regulatory Commission today that the new implementation date for price and classification changes for competitive products (package shipping) will take effect on May 31. 


USPS had postponed the originally planned implementation date of April 26 after the PRC twice remanded its proposed changes for market dominant products (first-class letters, postcards, and flats), explaining that less confusion would result if all prices had the same effective date. 

*It's not a given that the case on rates will be closed come Memorial Day. If the effective date changes again we will send a NeoNews Flash with all the details.
