USPS 5-year business plan: ‘Innovate faster,’ cut costs to remain solvent

The most impactful recommendations in the strategy would require legislation from Congress, regulatory relief from the Postal Regulatory Commission and new labor agreements from the postal unions.

The plan focuses on five major goals:

  • Goal 1 — Deliver world-class services and customer experiences

  • Goal 3 — Innovate faster to deliver value
  • Goal 4 — Invest in future platforms
  • Goal 5 — Pursue legislative and regulatory changes necessary to achieve financial sustainability
