USPS recently decided to rename Express Mail, and now plans to call it Priority Express Mail. An inside contact told us the change took place to build on the success of the Priority Mail program by incorporating the Priority name in the Express Mail Program.
Priority Mail has experienced significant growth in the package delivery space, with delivery service between one to three days. Express Mail guarantees next day and has struggled to gain market share. Although Express Mail is less expensive compared to the competition, it does not guarantee delivery by a certain time like many next day providers.
This is a great option to save shipping cost, when you do not have to have it delivered by a certain time. You can also use their USPS Click-N-Ship to avoid having to stand in line at the post office.
- Express Mail is now Priority Express Mail
- Express Mail International is now Priority Mail Express International
- Both Priority Mail and Priority Mail Express labels will show the estimated delivery time (1-DAY, 2-DAY, OR 3-DAY).
Priority Mail now includes $50 of free insurance coverage.
