USPS Reports Fiscal Year 2018 Results
11.15.2018 - USPS reports: "The USPS reported operating revenue of $70.6 billion for fiscal year 2018, an increase of $1.0 billion compared to the prior year. The higher revenues were driven largely by continued growth in the Shipping and Packages business, where revenue increased $2.0 billion, or 10.1 percent, which more than offset revenue declines in First-Class and Marketing Mail as a result of declining volumes in that segment of its business." - $3.9 Billion Loss - 'We are not financially strong' - Comments (Count)

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)
