partnersinner.The United States Postal Service (USPS) is one of the most recognisable and established postal brands in the world. Its origins date back to 1775, when Benjamin Franklin was appointed the first postmaster general.
USPS operate on a truly massive scale, delivering more letters, parcels, boxes and packages to more addresses across a larger region than any other postal service in the world - some 153.4 billion pieces of individual post annually. This equates to 47 per cent of the world’s total yearly post volume.
The U.S. postal service employs well over half a million workers, and is the third largest civilian employer in the USA, only behind behemoths Walmart and the U.S. Government itself. If the U.S. postal service operated in the private sector, it would rank 39th in the 2016 Fortune 500.
