GERMAN POSTAL SERVICE TO STREAMLINE PRICES

The Bundespost, Germany's postal service, will raise and streamline its prices beginning July 1, the Bundespost said.

The Bundespost will abandon the distinction between standard and other packages, a measure that will in effect raise the price for small packages but lower prices for customers dealing in bulk.Mail costs for commercial customers also will rise, the Bundespost said.
