There is no question that many businesses are going through
challenging times brought on by current economic conditions. The
U.S. Postal Service shares in these struggles. Although times may
be hard, we believe that this is a time to move forward with confidence
By nature the Postal Service is optimistic. After being in business
for over 200 years, we come by that trait naturally. We have seen
the civil war, both world wars, 9/11, anthrax attacks and many bad
economies. So we have every reason to believe we will come through
this current downturn.
Here in Long Island, our employees are working through the challenges
by processing your mail with reduced costs and reaching record levels
The U.S. Postal Service delivers more than 46 percent of the world's
mail volume - some 212 billion letters, advertisements, periodicals
and packages each year - and serves ten million customers each day
at its 37,000 nationwide retail locations.
Pricing flexibility, incentives and mail programs make mail a powerful
tool for reaching consumers. And, our investment in new technologies
and equipment has been the model that has allowed us to continue
providing the excellent service our customers expect.
As the USPS streamlines its operations to optimize its network of
mail processing hubs we appreciate the feedback from our PCC partners.
By focusing on what matters most to customers, leveraging our strengths
and embracing change we will be ready for the customers of tomorrow.
Together, we can ensure all customers receive even more value from
Through everyone’s efforts, we are redefining the way we conduct
the business of facilitating your business. We see you as business
partners. When you succeed we succeed.
All in all we are building a strong foundation to keep the postal
service a viable and continuing integral partner of American business.
