Sat, 01-26-2013 - 11:46am

As of January 27, 2013, Parcel Post is no longer a USPS shipping option. It is being replaced by Parcel Select (for online shipping) and Standard Post (for shipping from a Post Office). On average, Parcel Select will cost 9% more and Standard Post will cost 11% more than the former Parcel Post. Though both new services will come with a free tracking number.
