Save Over $3 Per Package With Regional Rate Boxes

July 17th, 2015

With Dimensional (DIM) Weight being applied for all UPS and FedEx Ground packages, USPS Priority Mail Regional Rate Boxes provide a cost effective option to ship products across the U.S.  The USPS provides three different types of Priority Mail Regional Rate Boxes:  Box A with a weight limit of 15 lbs., Box B with a weight limit of 20 lbs. and Box C with a weight limit of 25 lbs.

The Benefits of Regional Rate Boxes

There are many advantages to using USPS Priority Mail Regional Rate Boxes:

No DIM Weight: DIM Weight does not apply to Regional Rate Boxes.  That means you need not worry about the dimensions of the Regional Rate box you choose.  As long as your item is below the weight limit for the Regional Rate Box you choose, you simply need to find the rate that applies to your shipping zone. 

Listed below is the 2015 USPS Commercial Base (online postage) pricing for Regional Rate Boxes.  An additional $0.75 fee applies if you purchase Regional Rate postage at the Post Office.

RR Pricing

Low Costs Nationwide: Regional Rate Boxes provide a cost effective alternative to using Regular Priority Mail or Priority Mail Flat Rate Boxes.  With dimensions almost similar to that of a Priority Mail Flat Rate Medium Box, Priority Mail Regional Rate Box A can save you up to $3.55 per package.  When shipping multiple packages every day, these savings can really add up!  See a cost savings example below – USPS Priority Mail Regional Rate Box A provides the lowest cost option to ship a 3 lb. package from Los Angeles to New York (Zone 8 shipment).
