USPS OIG – Transportation Cost System – Surface Highway
The Transportation Cost System (TRACS) is a statistical sampling and data collection system the U.S. Postal Service uses to estimate transportation costs and distribute those costs to mail categories, set prices, create new products and services, and provide operational information to management. There are two types of TRACS tests: Air and Surface. The Postal Service uses TRACS – Surface to estimate and distribute transportation costs for highway, railroad, and water transportation accounts.
