Priority Mail Regional Rate Boxes: Short-Haul Shipping Is as Easy as ABC

The Postal Service™ is giving customers a big reason to ship regionally with USPS® — and it’s called the Priority Mail Regional Rate Box® C.

It’s the largest USPS-produced box — at 15-by-12-by-12 inches — with a 25-pound maximum weight limit. Making its debut on January 22, Box C joined Box A and Box B in the Priority Mail Regional Rate lineup.

The boxes are designed for commercial mailers and offer value for short-haul shipping. High-volume shippers, like e-tail­ers and local and regional-based businesses, can save money when they ship shorter distances. And they get free boxes too, which they can order online from®.

Box A and Box B come in both top-loading and side-loading versions. Box C is top loading only.

While these boxes are an online commercial product, for customer convenience, USPS is enabling payment and accep­tance at retail.
