Diagnostic Tools Drive Service Improvements

The U.S. Postal Service recently reported that its third quarter delivery service performance results marked “all-time record service performance” across all mail categories. In particular, the Postal Service had significant improvement in delivery performance for its commercial mail products in First Class and Standard Mail. Periodicals’ on-time performance topped 80 percent for the first time since 2010, a major improvement over the 46 percent score from earlier this year.

Remembering the Military . . . by Mail

Military mail provides members of the armed forces with a vital link to their communities.
