The drop has been about 5%, which is significant for Zones 1 to 5. The most significant price shift or change is related to the packages weighing 1 to 2 lbs from 1 to 5 zones. There is a substantial drop in the price, ranging from 10 to 18%.

Remember that the boxes for shippers of Priority Mail Flat Rate are somewhere about a %% price uptick. Also, remember that all these rates will be affected by the distance traveled and the specifics of the packages, such as the length, width, and weight.

Please compare all your packages before shipping them so you can optimally use the opportunities. A new service class has also been announced by the U.S. Postal Services, with different postal rates in June 2023.

These rates have several advantages. The packages will be delivered within 2 to 5 business days. The best part is that tracking is included in these services, so you do not need to pay anything extra. You will get charged if your package is more than 70 lbs or 15.999 oz.

So, other services such as First Class Package Services, Parcel Select Ground, and USPS Retail Ground might need help accessing these details.
