USPS Announces Rate Increases for 2011
• Outside county: 1.8 percent;
• Inside county: 1.1 percent
It's been a busy week for Donahoe, who earlier announced a 16 percent reduction to the officer ranks, realigned revenue-generating business units and the closure of one area office in order to streamline the USPS, the organization reported.
The USPS said that while cost savings will be realized, the main objective of the restructuring is to enhance and strengthen customer service and relationships. The realignment reportedly flattens the organization, fostering flexibility to more quickly adapt to changing market forces and further mail volume decline.
"It is imperative that the Postal Service continue its evolution as a forward-thinking, fast-acting company capable of providing quality products and services for customers and a welcoming, diverse, professional workplace," Donahoe said.
