Publishers who still mail print editions to subscribers are facing challenges on at least a couple of fronts.

For one, new statistics released by the U.S Postal Service show that 86.1% of periodicals were delivered on-time against the USPS service standard in Q4, a decrease of 2.8% from the prior quarter.

In contrast, 91.4% of first class mail was delivered on-time, a 1.2% decrease, and marketing mail held steady with a 95.2% on-time delivery rate.

This may or may not have any real impact given recent postal policy changes, which U.S. Senator Amy Klobuchar (D-MN) is speaking out against. She says the changes are hurting local and rural newspapers.
