USPS Seeks a New Beginning
March 14, 2013 - SCMR Editorial
Supply chain executives seeking to learn more about the critical issues facing the United States Postal Service will be convening in San Francisco next week for the annual National Postal Forum. This also represents a rare opportunity for the USPS to meet with its most valued shippers in one location.
Among the more prominent professionals addressing e-commerce imperatives will be Endicia General Manager and Cofounder, Amine Khechfe. As reported in SCMR earlier this year, USPS is reinventing itself to accommodate the new generation of “e-tailers.”
Shippers concerned that they will have fewer express transport options once USPS ceases Saturday deliveries should note that small packages are not in jeopardy, says Khechfe. On the contrary, the outlook for same-day, next-day, free delivery has never been brighter.
“Making Shipping Easy and Cost-effective in an eCommerce World,” may also address the old and tired image of the USPS as a moribund institution resistant to change. Its introduction of new information technology and automation seems to suggest that there’s a new beginning.
