The U.S. Postal Service is gratified that the United States Court of Appeals for the District of Columbia Circuit reversed a key aspect of how the Postal Regulatory Commission (PRC) measured volume losses caused by the Great Recession.
The continuation of the exigent pricing surcharge is critical to the Postal Service’s financial health, as the Commission recognized in its 2014 Financial Analysis which acknowledged the significant importance of the exigent rate surcharge that was implemented in January of 2014 in the increase in Total Market Dominant revenue for FY2014.
We look forward to exploring other issues with the PRC on remand in accordance with today’s court order.
