Three of the four companies the Postal Service discussed offering the same-day and next-day service to declined, citing various obstacles.

  • The U.S. Postal Service hasn’t been able to convince online postage providers to offer Connect Local Mail, the agency’s same-day and next-day local delivery service, according to a filing last month with the Postal Regulatory Commission.
  • Of the four providers the USPS has had discussions with, three declined the offer and expressed a lack of interest in offering it on their platforms, the May 10 filing said. Discussions were ongoing with the final provider at the time of the filing.
  • Connect Local Mail, under the Postal Service’s Connect Local umbrella, is focused on speedy document delivery within a local area. The agency has flagged UPS and FedEx as potential competitors for the offering.
