USPS Realizes Just 1/20th of Projected Savings From Network Realignment
10.18.2018 - GovExec reports: "Postal management told its regulatory body it would save $1.6 billion in fiscal years 2016 and 2017 by eliminating overnight delivery of regular, first-class mail and pushing back some of its two-day delivery to a three-day window, but the mailing agency's inspector general found it did not even come close to reaching that estimate. USPS instead saw about $90 million in savings, about one-twentieth of its estimate." - USPS OIG Report - Comments (Count)

Trump administration moves to stop subsidizing Chinese mail
10.17.2018 - CNN reports: "On Wednesday, US officials will initiate a withdrawal process from the UPU, which was established in 1874 and has 192 member countries. The process to withdraw will take at least a year, and the administration intends to negotiate new rates with the group during that time. Under the current rules, the UPU sets lower rates for developing countries. It makes it possible to mail a package from Beijing to New York for less than it costs to send it from San Francisco to New York, for example." - UPS, USPS Praise Move - Bloomberg: Trump is Right - China Regrets - Trump is trying to screw up your cheap international shipping - UPU Statement - USPS Praises Trump's Move - Comments (Count)

USPS Set to Run Out of Postal Retiree Health Care Funding in 12 Years
10.03.2018 - GovExec reports: "The USPS will run out of money to pay for its retirees' health care in 12 years if Congress does not take action to address the funding shortfall, according to a new audit of the benefit program.
