  • The U.S. Postal Service has reduced its volume moved by air transport by more than 90% over the past two years, Postmaster General and CEO Louis DeJoy said in prepared remarks to the agency’s Board of Governors last week.
  • Due to the agency’s continued shift away from air transport, today more than 95% of both First-Class mail and packages are moved through the agency’s less-expensive ground transportation system, DeJoy said.
  • The reductions put the financially pressured Postal Service on pace to reduce its annual air transportation cost by about $1 billion, according to DeJoy.
