USPS Free Expedited Packaging Supplies Under Fire from OIG

Do you use free USPS shipping supplies such as Priority Mail and Priority Mail Express boxes and envelopes? If so, you may want to add your voice to how vital this program is to your business.

The United States Postal Service Office of the Inspector General is reviewing the feasibility of this program. It could potentially curb or eliminate free packaging supplies if its report finds that this could save the postal service money.

In seeking public comment on this issue, the OIG acknowledges the postal service believes the program helps generate business, and the costs are covered in the shipping rates it charges.
