Postmaster General: USPS cutting extra trips in line with IG recommendations

Postmaster General Louis DeJoy told House lawmakers on Monday that the Postal Service hasn’t adjusted as quickly as expected to ongoing efforts to cut late and extra trips between mail processing facilities and local post offices, resulting in mail delays.

In a contentious House Oversight and Reform Committee hearing, DeJoy also blamed the agency’s serious financial problems on Congress for failing to pass postal reform legislation after more than a decade of net financial losses.

DeJoy said his plan to cut transportation costs stemmed from a USPS inspector general report released the same week he took office in June — the latest in a series of IG reports warning that the agency’s delivery network costs run too high to justify with declining mail volumes.
