DMA Urges PRC to Reject USPS Request for Exigent Postage Increase

November 8, 2011

The Direct Marketing Association (DMA) is disappointed that the United States Postal Service (USPS) has told the Postal Regulatory Commission (PRC) that it will pursue its request for exigent (above inflation) postage increases. These increases would be in addition to the now-scheduled 2.1 percent increase that becomes effective Jan. 22, 2012. This request is in error. DMA urges the PRC to reject this plan.

The future of the US Mail depends upon forward thinking. This is not the time to drive more mail from the system. The USPS will rely upon data that is over one-year old to support driving postage higher.  Rather than digging up the past, USPS should be looking forward and right-sizing its network, transportation, and employee complement.
