KANSAS CITY, Mo., Feb. 24, 2020 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — Husch Blackwell announced today the publication of its Top 150 U.S. Postal Service Suppliers list, an annual look at the companies with the largest supplier relationships with the U.S. Postal Service (USPS). This year’s rankings reveal an increase in the number of transportation companies at the top of the list. Seven of the top 10 companies are involved in transportation, one more than in fiscal year 2018, led by Federal Express with just over $2 billion in revenue from USPS.
“Transportation is central to mail and parcel delivery, so it is no surprise that the companies who move the mail continue to dominate the top of the list,” said David Hendel, the chair of Husch Blackwell’s Postal Service Contracting practice and a partner in the firm’s Government Contracts group. “All three of the newcomers to the top 10 are transportation-related companies with several more positioned in the next ten. Transportation spending in 2019 also reached an all-time high, totaling $9 billion.”
Hendel has compiled the Top 150 list annually since 1999. The list is based on data received in response to Freedom of Information Act requests and consolidates entries for affiliated companies.
The suppliers listed among the Husch Blackwell Top 150 U.S. Postal Service Suppliers list accounted for $10.3 billion, roughly five percent above the previous year’s total. The top 10 USPS suppliers earned $4.2 billion in fiscal year 2018, roughly in line with FY 2018.
