MFSA Throws Support Behind USPS Five-Day Delivery
ALEXANDRIA, VA—The Board of Directors of the Mailing & Fulfillment Service Association (MFSA) recently voted to support the United States Postal Service (USPS) in its 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 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.
Meanwhile, the chairman of the Postal Regulatory Commission, Ruth Goldway, told the editorial board of the Washington Post earlier this week that she supports a taxpayer subsidy to help sustain the cash-challenged USPS.
