USPS to Launch Connect This Summer, Inviting Shippers Into Its Network
This summer, the U.S. Postal Service is set to begin an ambitious trial program that will invite online sellers and other shippers to access its network directly for speedy local and regional package deliveries.
Senior leaders at USPS on Monday touted the new Connect program as a major piece of the agency’s broader, 10-year plan to become financially sustainable as it reorients itself around a thriving packages business.
“We believe there is big opportunity to add $25 billion in net revenue growth by expanding access to our network for package delivery,” Postmaster General Louis DeJoy said in remarks at the National Postal Forum, a conference held virtually this year.
