Season's Greetings

Pushing the Envelope wishes our readers a joyful holiday season and a prosperous new year. We are taking a break this week but encourage you to read our past blogs and let us know what you think on any of the wide range of topics we blogged on in 2019.

On December 30, look for our annual list of the Top 10 Postal Stories of the Year. As always, we look forward to your comments and insights.

 

Provider Fraud Focus

The financial impact to the U.S. Postal Service from workers’ compensation fraud cases is so significant, it warrants a good deal of investigative attention. Our special agents – often working with other law enforcement partners – investigate fraud by claimants or providers.

 

Parsing Labor Costs

By its very nature, the U.S. Postal Service is a labor-intensive organization. In fact, labor makes up three-quarter of total postal costs — or $57 billion.

Controlling these costs is essential to the long-term viability of the postal system. That’s why our latest white paper attempted to determine where labor costs are increasing, where they have shrunk, and how have they changed over the past 10 years.

 

Express or Bust

You get what you pay for with Priority Mail Express, the U.S. Postal Service’s fastest mail product. It’s not cheap, but it comes with a money-back guarantee should USPS fall short of the promised one- or two-day delivery.
