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.


Jenny Come Lately

Think stamps are only worth the paper they’re printed on? Philatelists will tell you to think again. The tiny One-Cent Magenta stamp, now on display at the National Postal Museum, recently sold for $9.5 million. 

Of course, that sole-surviving stamp of the British Guiana penny issues is the rarest stamp in the world. Other stamps deemed collectible by the philatelic community are also worth a pretty penny. 


Curbing Workers’ Comp Abuses

Disability programs are vital for a nation that supports its citizens. In the United States, federal employees, including postal workers, who suffer employment-related injury or illness are entitled to workers’ compensation under the Federal Employees’ Compensation Act (FECA).
