Top 10 Postal Stories of 2017

It’s that time of year again. Our annual list of the top 10 stories from the postal and logistics world. And who doesn’t love a list?

Season's Greetings

Pushing the Envelope wishes our readers a joyful holiday season and a prosperous New Year. We will take a break this week, but we encourage you to read over the past year’s blogs and let us know what you think about any of the wide range of topics we blogged on in 2017.

On January 1, we will post our annual list of the Top 10 Postal Stories of the Year – one of our most popular blogs of the year.

 

Semiannual Report to Congress

Two times a year, we publish a report of our work and activities for a just-ended six-month period. This Semiannual Report to Congress (or SARC, as we affectionately call it) is required by law, but it’s also a chance for us to share our record of work with our many stakeholders.

The work reflects our mission of ensuring efficiency, accountability, and integrity in the U.S. Postal Service. We also help maintain confidence in the postal system and improve the Postal Service’s bottom line through independent audits, investigations, data analytics and research.
