Hmmm… based on a cursory scan of the rate tables, the Commercial Base pricing for Parcel Select NPS is still pretty high, even with free tracking. When would this service be useful? I still don’t see a point in using USPS’s ground services with other services such as PM FRE/FRBs, PM regional rate boxes, as well as FedEx’s Ground/Home Delivery that are faster and cheaper … if Parcel Select NPS gets the same service and priority that Parcel Post did.
Example: 4 lb from SE MI to Portland OR
Parcel Select NPS is 13.06 (Standard Post is 13.58)
Regular PM is 16.13 but Regional Rate A is 9.88 and Medium Flat-Rate is 11.3
FedEx Ground is 9.96 (+$2.8 for resi)
