Proposed postal rates thrill trade publishers

Published on .

The Postal Rate Commission announced Jan. 25 general approval of the U.S. Postal Service's proposed postal reclassification and rate changes, but rejected dividing small and large publications into separate mailing categories. The Postal Service's Board of Governors must still review the plan. Large, presorted titles will see an average rate decline of 3.7%, rather than a 14% drop. The average increase for titles otherwise handled will be 3.5%. Business Publishers Association President-CEO Gordon Hughes said trade publishers were "generally thrilled with the recommendations."
