The Postal Service also said that it has filed notice of a temporary price increase to take effect in the fall.

The planned price increase would go into effect at 12:00AM Central time on October 18, 2020 and remain in place through Christmas until 12:00AM Central time December 27, 2020.

The increase was approved by the Governors of the Postal Service on August 6 and would raise prices on its commercial domestic competitive parcels – Priority Mail Express, Priority Mail, First-Class Package Service, Parcel Select, and Parcel Return Service.

The Postal Service said that the price increase is being done “in response to increased expenses and heightened demand for online shopping package volume due to the coronavirus pandemic and expected holiday ecommerce.
