Great news from USPS announced for summer 2023

Coming this summer 2023, USPS will be launching a new and much anticipated service, USPS-Ground Advantage.

Exclusively available to official USPS partners like SKULabs!

A light at the end of the tunnel to a long running plan for consolidating packaging options from USPS yet incorporating the best of each option, is finally coming to fruition. We expect to see this launched some time in Summer 2023. 

USPS will now consolidate First Class Package Service, USPS Retail Ground, and Parcel Select Ground, all into a simpler and more affordable method – USPS Ground Advantage

What does this mean for you?

Lower Prices

January 2022, the United States Postal Service implemented changes that reduced shipping USPS Retail Ground products by 7% and by 12% for Parcel Ground Select. These discounted rates will still continue for the new service incorporation.

Faster Shipping / Better Reliability

USPS – Ground Advantage will adhere to the standards of the First Class Package Service by ensuring all deliveries will be delivered in a 2-5 days window vs the previous 2-8 days as offered by Retail Ground and Parcel Select. Additionally the increase to 70 lbs that was instituted at the end of last year for the First Class Service, will also be standard on this new method. This offers a much broader option for your shipments while still hitting those shipping deadlines with accuracy!

Reducing the Decision Making

We are all aware of the challenges of researching the best shipping methods. Will it make it there on time? Do my products fit the weight restrictions? Is it affordable? USPS-Ground Advantage eliminates these questions and reduces your decision making process by incorporating the best of all packages into one. This empowers you to focus on more important aspects of running your eCommerce single or multi-channel operations! 

SKULabs is proud to announce that we will be the front-runners of this new incorporation from USPS, and we will be ready to launch this coveted new service as soon as it is available!
