Mail delivery is getting slower, perhaps due to consolidations and closures of postal facilities, according to a detailed analysis in a new GAO report. The USPS, however, is dismissing the findings, stating the sampled areas are not indicative of overall performance and that severe weather skewed the data. Nevertheless, the two factors (slower mail and consolidations/closures) are discussed together throughout the report. The report is available at www.postalmag.com/slower.pdf with key tables and infographics presented below.
