We fired the Post office for all packages where I work. And we are moving to more and more email rather than consuming paper, ink and money to tell a cutomer how much their charges are.

The reasons were purely performance based. With registered mail we have a loss rate far higher than with FedEx. Far more Priority Mail envelopes are late than overnight letters via FedEx. Late first class letters have a significant negative effect on revenue flow, and customers payment history. there are no good junk mail filters available like there are online. Tracking a package is far easier and more accurate with FedEx.

Blame the Congress and email all you want, but performance still matters to our economy. And the Post office is on a performance reduction program, now official.

Right wing bullshit on your part. I have been seeing this sort of thing claimed on Libertypost and freedom4um.

And it has nothing - NOTHING - to do with the Congressional mandate that they prefund their pension plans 75 years in advance which saps the USPS money out.

Insane. Letting the post office roll over and die will only empower Congress to privatize and crappify even more public institutions because no one seems to want to invest in anything that’s already (in this case, intentionally!) damaged.

And how about those private services— UPS, for example, doesn’t even take cash.

Think me a liar if you want, does not matter to me. But the facts at my work remain. Funny how reality seeps out through places high and low. It’s like water that way.

Of course I said nothing about the retirement funds. That has no effect of what has happened at work.

re: #3 dragonath

I don’t want it to die. I want it to be a good vendor. Right now for package mail it is not.

This just in…
USPS lies again about an 11;00am attempted delivery for a registered high value package. And promptly can not now find it. Now a customer will be waiting a month or two to get the insurance money for the lost package. A problem for that poor guy in the low five figures. His platinum and gold will not be refined as was needed.

Meantime FedEx just delivered 4 similar packages on time. UPS just brought us some computer equipment. Undamaged and on time.

These guys have got to do better than that.

90014 zip code BTW.

And FedEx left a PC on my door step the entire day.
What’s your point?

re: #7 Varek Raith

FedEx was who we had to use after the USPSA could not get it done right. Unless your computer was sent “signature only” your doorstep is just fine.
