The Delivery Revolution in Your Neighborhood

By Jody Berenblatt, senior advisor, GrayHair Advisors  We are living in the age of the “delivery revolution.” Businesses are positioning themselves to deliver goods where and when customers want them. Order nearly anything anywhere and the Postal Service can deliver the item in a reasonable timeframe at a reasonable price.


Worth the Price: High Quality, Convenience, and Timeliness

By Robert M. Campbell, Ph.D., president and vice-chancellor, Mount Allison University, Sackville, NB Canada  When I became president of Mount Allison University, Canada’s top-ranked undergraduate university, I moved to a college town, which, like most Canadian towns, did not get home delivery from Canada Post. I had to adjust to the rhythm of mail runs to our Post Office. I have, ironically, since enjoyed MORE home delivery than ever. Without access to urban retail outlets, we shop online incessantly.


Carriers as Conduits

By Jim Holland, research director, National Association of Letter Carriers  Six days a week, over 200,000 city delivery letter carriers fan out on routes across the country to deliver and pick up mail and packages for residences and businesses. Carriers now even deliver packages on Sundays and holidays. Increasingly, letter carriers do work beyond traditional postal services, helping to meet the growing needs of both shippers and recipients.  Letter carriers are a daily presence in communities across the country, which helps them become familiar with the needs of their communities.


Rethinking Mailbox Access

By Keith Kellison, senior vice president, UPS Global Public Affairs  When we say “neighborhood logistics,” what we really mean is serving everyday people like me and you better than ever before. At UPS, that’s nothing new. Since our start in 1907, we’ve gone through a host of transformations. From the early days of delivering by bike, to the first package cars, to next-day air shipments, UPS has led the way in meeting customers’ demands.  Quickly responding to changes in those demands is paramount.
