Explanation:
Ohne den weiteren Zusammenhang zu kennen und nur auf den logischen Sinngehalt des Satzes bezogen, würde ich folgende Einteilung in Sinneinheiten vornehmen: "costs for processing and handling" auf der einen Seite und "free and reduced-rate mail". Im Deutschen also etwa folgendermaßen: "Kosten des Postdienstes für die Bearbeitung und Abwicklung gebührenfreier oder gebührenreduzierer Postendungen"
