Action Plan Unveiled to Help Ensure a Viable Postal Service Future

“Ensuring a Viable Postal Service for America,” the Postal Service™ action plan for the next decade, describes a flexible, agile Postal Service that can adapt to America’s changing mailing habits and preferences. The Postal Service understands that to best serve the American people in 2020 and beyond, it must be leaner and more able to quickly respond to customer mailing and shipping needs. Earlier today Postmaster General John E. Potter addressed stakeholders to share plans and action steps to achieve that goal, including changes to delivery frequency, eliminating prepayment of retiree health benefits and expanding access to products and services.

This is a path to the future, a future where the Postal Service remains a vital driver of the American economy, an integral part of every American community and continues to deliver the greatest value of any comparable post in the world. If given the flexibility to respond to an evolving marketplace, the Postal Service will continue to be an integral part of the fabric of American life.
