2021 Annual Carrier Rate Increases

As the year winds down, we want to remind you of the upcoming annual postage rate increases that are scheduled by all carriers in the new year. Carriers implement rate increases every year that are in line with rising costs due to inflation.

You will see increases for all postage types and there is no action required on your end. New rates go into effect in January and we will update you with the specific dates for each carrier’s increase in the next month.

The first carrier increase will be Dec 28 for our Canpar courier pickups. We will continue to update this post as the dates are confirmed by our partner carriers.
