The U.S. Postal Service expects its shipping and packages volume to grow 13.1 percent, to 4.5 billion pieces in 2015. The Postal Service welcomes the increased package volume and continues to test different strategies for delivering more packages. However, there are challenges that could increase delivery costs.
Our review will assess the Southern Area’s package growth management strategy in city delivery operations.
- How are increased package volumes impacting city delivery operations?
- As package volumes continue to grow, how can the Postal Service minimize the cost per delivery?
- What does the Postal Service need to do to ensure it can provide customers with high quality package delivery?
- How can the Postal Service accommodate the increase and unpredictable package volume with the current delivery staff and fleet?
