Magazine postal hike may be eased to under 10%

Published on .

Magazines the week of Aug. 28 got a clear hint that a requested 15% hike in their postal rates, slated to take effect early next year, may yet be eased. A U.S. Postal Service economist told the Postal Rate Commission that new evidence shows the service will get $200 million in automation savings from procedural changes magazines implemented in cooperation with the Postal Service. An official of the Magazine Publishers of America said if the commission accepts the new evidence, the rate increase could drop to less than 10%. The Postal Rate Commission is set to approve final rates in November.
