USPS Introduces New Flat-Rate Products Priced to Move International Shipments
The U.S. Postal Service has introduced simplified pricing and three new products to its portfolio of flat-rate shipping solutions, providing additional options priced to move messages, materials and merchandise across the country or around the world for one simple, low rate.
Leading the expanded lineup of flat-rate shipping options are the new Express Mail Legal Flat Rate Envelope and Priority Mail Legal Flat Rate Envelope, allowing attorneys, finance professionals, real estate agents and others to easily mail legal-sized documents, eliminating a fold in these important materials.
"Our Express Mail International and Priority Mail International flat-rate shipping options offer tremendous value in the marketplace for international shipping," said Pranab Shah, vice president, global business. "With the addition of these new flat-rate products and the move to uniform pricing for select Priority Mail envelopes, we're responding to the popularity of these products while simplifying pricing for customers."
Express Mail International offers service to more than 190 countries in 3 to 5 business days, on average. Like the standard Express Mail Flat Rate Envelope, the Express Mail Legal Flat Rate Envelope is priced at $26.90 to Canada and $29.95 to all other international destinations, including Mexico.
The new Priority Mail Legal Flat Rate Envelope also accommodates legal-size documents, with service to international destinations in 6 to 10 business days, on average. Rounding out the new offerings is the Priority Mail Flat Rate Padded Envelope, designed to provide cushioning for more fragile contents.
With the introduction of uniform pricing, the cost to mail up to 4 pounds in any of the six Priority Mail Flat Rate Envelopes smaller than 12.5" x 9.5", including the Priority Mail Legal Flat Rate Envelope and Priority Mail Padded Flat Rate Envelope, is $11.95 to Canada and Mexico, and $13.95 to all other international destinations.
