PRC Advises USPS to Further Assess the Implications of Its Load-Leveling Plan
The Postal Regulatory Commission's advisory opinion on the Postal Service's load-leveling plan is to take a step back and do a more thorough job of assessing the implications for mailers before putting it into play. USPS had hoped to enforce the plan beginning today. It can still choose to do so, or wait and take the PRC's opinion under advisement.
Under the new load-leveling plan, Standard Mail accepted on Friday will not be delivered until Tuesday, and mail accepted on Saturday will have a promised delivery day of Wednesday.
