The USPS just announced three new changes to their Priority Mail® Service that could make a big impact to reduce your shipping costs and give you a reason to shop rates against the private carriers.
- Improved Tracking – At the start of the year they made every Priority Mail® item traceable at no cost. (You used to need to add the $.75 Delivery Confirmation Label or submit the tracking number electronically.)
- Free Insurance on Every Package – They are offering up to $50 of insurance on every item ($100 if you are a high volume shipper and qualify for their Commercial Plus Rates). This is a way to level the playing field with the private carriers that offer $100 of insurance for free.
- Day Specific Delivery – They will let you know based on your zip code when you can expect delivery.
