>Printers, ACMA Head Defend Five-Day Postal Delivery: “The advantage to five-day delivery is reduction in cost, “and with the low volume it could probably be pulled off,” Landis says. The disadvantage—especially if it is Tuesday or Wednesday—would be the limited in home dates available for catalogers causing marketing strategy changes.”
* I would have thought the post office would cut out Saturday service, but mid-week is an interesting idea.
* I hope the post office also consolidates distribution centers.
* Post office should have a new zone for rural, APO/FPO, Alaska, Hawaii, and US Territories. I think many package cost is subsidized for deliveries to these locations. UPS & FedEx charge more for these locations, I don’t see the post office can not.
