US Postal Service Accelerates Online Sales – El Financiero
Laredo, Texas. – The US Postal Service has announced that as of September 27, “same day” and “next day” delivery will begin in this city and in other cities in southern Texas; Express delivery programs have already been pilot tested in other cities and metropolitan areas of the state.
The Postal Service has launched a pilot program in South Texas for same-day delivery that will allow and announce that it will bring its pilot program called “Connect Local” to 35 locations; The program promises the help of a global logistics problem that has raised international transportation costs by up to 400 percent, solving the “last mile” problem or delivery to the final buyer.
Launched July 19 at seven locations in Dallas and Houston, the USPS Connect Local pilot program has been launched the same day or the next day for local businesses and organizations.
“It is part of a larger USPS Connect program that is being piloted in phases to help businesses meet growing consumer demand for rapid local and regional delivery and revenue,” USPS said in a press release last Thursday.
“Neither snow, nor rain, nor heat, nor night” would be an obstacle for the USPS- to deliver mail, as the unofficial mantra of this institution of origins reads as old as the American nation itself.
In fact, the United States Postal Service is one of the major drivers of economy and commerce due to its reliability and accuracy; Indeed, during the last presidential election, former President Donald Trump cut off the flow of federal funds and ordered changes so that ballot papers for voters, who had to do so by mail by age and especially due to the COVID19 epidemic, suffered especially. In areas with a democratic majority.
According to Bob Besterfield, CEO of CH Robinson, one of the world’s largest logistics companies, “The vast network of ports, container ships and trucking companies that transport goods around the world is very complex and the cost of freight is rising exponentially.
This is troubling news for retailers and Christmas shoppers,” he added, adding that one of the most expensive sections due to the scattering of deliveries is the so-called “last mile” and that process is precisely the part that the US Postal Service is trying to solve.
