USPS wants in on the fast-delivery wars. Can it compete?

USPS Connect gives businesses of all sizes fast delivery options using the Postal Service network, previously only available to high-volume shippers, per Modern Shipper.

Specifically, Connect includes 4 services:

  • Local, offers same-day delivery in select locations, and next-day delivery in all locations
  • Regional, offers next-day regional delivery across most locations
  • National, offers a range of options from 1st-class to ground shipping
  • Returns, allows businesses to offer customers free returns via en route pickup

The offering also gives all customers access to the USPS Click-N-Ship platform, where they can buy postage and print labels online.

USPS ran a trial of Connect in Texas in 2021 and has already started rolling it out nationwide.

USPS compete in fast delivery? What a joke! We operate as though it’s still 1950… Fast delivery LMAO!!

Yeah, let’s over work the carriers more and expect people not to quit! There are many routes the country that are not even being delivered daily.
