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

March 24, 2022


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.
