usps rate change notice for dimensional weight pricing

On June 23, 2019 the USPS® launches new Dimensional Weight Pricing rates and weight limitations for certain mail classes. EasyPost is a USPS Approved PC Postage Provider, and our customers immediately gain access to the new USPS rates and limitations.

Dimensional Pricing Updates

Here’s what you need to know about the new USPS® modifications to the calculation and application of dimensional pricing:

  • USPS will be adding dimensional (DIM) weight pricing to Priority Mail zones Local and 1-4 so that DIM weight pricing will now apply to all zones.
  • USPS will be adding DIM weight pricing to Priority Mail Express®.
  • USPS will be adding DIM weight pricing to Parcel Select.
  • USPS will be reducing the DIM weight divisor from 194 to 166.

International Shipping Weights

Included in this change is a decrease in the maximum weight limit for First-Class Mail International Large Envelopes from 4 lbs to 15.994 oz.

EasyPost will process these calculations automatically when they apply, starting on Sunday.
