USPS Reports Fiscal Year 2017 Results
11.14.2017 - PostalMag.com reports: "The U.S. Postal Service reported revenue of $69.6 billion for fiscal year 2017 (October 1, 2016 - September 30, 2017), a decrease of $1.8 billion compared to the prior year. The lower revenues were driven largely by accelerated declines in First-Class and Marketing Mail volumes. In 2017, mail volumes declined by approximately 5.0 billion pieces, or 3.6 percent, while package volumes grew by 589 million pieces, or 11.4 percent." - Forbes: A Failed Mission - Red Ink For 11th Year in Row as Mail Slumps - USPS Reports $1.8 Billion Revenue Drop - Comments (Count)
Atlanta USPS Mail Carrier Explains Late Mail Deliveries
11.09.2017 - CBS 46 reports: "She said post offices are understaffed citywide, which forces carriers to take on extra routes, and it puts them in dangerous situations when they inevitably have to deliver mail at night. The anonymous USPS employee said the tough working environment has some carriers quitting their routes at sundown, whether they're finished or not, and some are looking for new jobs altogether, which does not help the understaffing issue. She also described management treating employees worse in response to complaints about working extra hours." - Postal worker robbed delivering mail after-hours in Fulton County - Comments (Count)
As U.S. Postage Rates Continue to Rise, The USPS Gives the Chinese a 'Free Ride'
11.05.2017 - Forbes reports: "As the rates of the U.S. Postal Service continue on their precipitous ascent, how cheaply Chinese merchants are able to ship their products thousands of miles across the world to the USA has become emblematic of the stark trade imbalance between the countries as well as the disadvantages that American companies are up against as foreign competitors outmaneuver them in their own backyard." - Comments (Count)
