Packaging Postal Reform for the E-Commerce Era

Thursday, September 9, 2021 - 03:00 PM to 04:00 PM
Webinar

Event Summary

Over the last year, U.S. Postal Service (USPS) package volumes increased by 25 percent, while first-class and marketing mail declined. As Congress considers USPS reform legislation for the e-commerce era, members will need to account for this important structural change in the environment in which USPS operates. Indeed, the core strength of USPS is its integrated, national delivery network that delivers to more than 157 million delivery points six days a week. By taking advantage of its economies of scale, USPS is able to keep costs down for not only mail delivery, but also for package delivery.

ITIF and Citizens Against Government Waste hosted an expert panel discussion on postal reform legislation and how to ensure the continued viability of USPS as a deliverer of both mail and packages.
