“Pitney Bowes postage meters are used by over 700,000 small and midsized business owners in the United States who use the U.S. Postal Service to communicate with customers, suppliers and service providers. These businesses purchase over $10 Billion in postage from the Postal Service each year, or approximately 15% of the U.S. Postal Services annual total revenue. This represents a very important and significant revenue stream for the Postal Service. The imposition of a 10 – 25% tariff on these postage meters and parts would have a direct and immediate impact on the cost of the postage meters. This would lead to a decrease in the use of these postage meters, thus directly injuring the fiscal health of the U.S. Postal Service, and the small and midsized businesses who used these postage meters.”
