The Postal Service is facing serious and substantial challenges: declining mail volume, increased use of the Internet for bill payment and presentment, a lingering recession and legislative constraints on how and when we can close Post Offices or what types of products we can sell at retail.
After four months of intense research and discussion, the Postal Service will announce an action plan to address these concerns, as well as a number of steps necessary to close a substantial gap by the year 2020.
The Postal Service has decided on a future path that calls for greater business model flexibility and changes to the way it does business.
