USPS Ranked #1 in Postal Services
The Oxford Strategic Consulting (OSC) firm named the U.S. Postal Service as the best within the world’s largest 20 economies. Under consideration were measurements such as public confidence in the service, number of mailpieces delivered, reliability and number of people served. Data was collected over a three year period.
This may be surprising to some of you given the recent troubles of the USPS, but they beat out such postal services as Japan Post, Australia Post, Korea Post and Deutsche Post.
The report determined that the USPS delivers almost twice as many letters per employee as its closest competitor and more than 5 times as many as fifth place Deutsche Post.
Postmaster General Patrick Donahoe said in a statement “We’re proud to lead the world in postal services and we will continue to deliver superior performance for generations. Our best days are ahead of us. I have no doubt the Postal Service will overcome its current financial challenges and endure as the world’s leading service.”
The USPS delivers to more than 150 million addresses, or approximately 40% of the world’s mail. And despite the growth of e-commerce, remains a viable source of fast, accurate deliverability.
