MFSA Officially Endorses the Postal Service’s Position on Five-Day Delivery

ALEXANDRIA, VA—July 21, 2011—The board of directors of the Mailing & Fulfillment Service Association (MFSA) voted to support the U.S. Postal Service’s proposed move to five-day delivery service, during its recent meeting held in conjunction with the association’s Annual Conference in Colorado Springs, CO.

In a subsequent letter sent by MFSA’s President and CEO Ken Garner, the association expressed its support of the Postmaster General’s commitment to reducing postal costs, increasing operating efficiencies and building mail volume and revenue in cooperation with its members.

The letter acknowledged the value of Saturday delivery, but also expressed the recognition that the costs inherent in that service, combined with the current economic pressure on the agency, make its elimination an unavoidable necessity.

MFSA is committed to providing member value through a robust advocacy program and the maintenance of a mutually beneficial partnership with USPS leadership.
