Something is always in the news about what’s going on with the US Postal Service. Did you know that you can view their 5 year Business Plan? Take a look at it right here:
In the plan you will read things like what’s up with 5 day mail delivery vs. 6.
According to their plan:
“Adjusting delivery frequency is one of the fundamental elements of the USPS Five-Year Business Plan, which is designed to enable USPS to compete more effectively in today’s marketplace and better respond to changing customer needs.
Under the six-day package and five-day mail delivery schedule, mail would be delivered to street addresses Monday through Friday, and packages Monday through Saturday. Mail addressed to Post Office boxes will continue to be delivered Saturdays, and Post Offices currently open Saturdays will remain open.
The USPS will implement this change when Congress passes comprehensive postal legislation that includes provisions affirmatively providing us with the ability to establish a financially feasible national delivery schedule.”
