USPS revises five-day delivery plan

Solomon Thimothy - February 22, 2010

The US Postal Service is now planning on stopping delivery to street addresses and some processing, but it will not close post offices.

Originally, USPS planned to shut down processing on Saturdays and Sundays. These changes are in response to business mailers in order to process remittance mail on Saturday. Remittance mail includes payments from customers to businesses as well as checks that banks send each other. Cutting Saturday processing would have meant that checks would not move for two days.

USPS would also deliver and process Express Mail all week, but eliminate Saturday delivery of Propority Mail.

The estimated annual savings with these revised changes would be about $3 billion.

If Congress, and other groups such as the Postal Regulatory Commission, approve the plan, it would be implemented by mid-2011 at the earliest.
