USPS Special Handling - Fragile Discontinued July 10th, 2022

The United States Postal Service (USPS®) has announced that effective July 10, 2022, the Postal Service will revise Mailing Standards of the Domestic Mail Manual (DMM), in various sections, to reflect the Postal Service's decision to discontinue the Special Handling - Fragile extra service.


This added-on feature used to cost an additional $12.15 as of the USPS August 2021 price guide.


This decision will not affect live animals shipped the Postal Service provided in Publication 52, Hazardous, Restricted, and  Perishable Mail. 


The Postal Service believes this standard, will provide customers with a more efficient mailing experience.


If you have questions about this new fee on shipping packages, or wish to schedule an appointment with a representative, please feel free to contact Walz Label & Mailing Systems at 877-971-1500.
