This week is all about the USA. First of all, three announcements from the US Postal Service, then a look at the recent UPU Extraordinary Congress. John Callan, Managing Director of Ursa Major Associates, joins me for some extra commentary:
USPS’s current parcel locker network
Should the parcel lockers be carrier agnostic or carrier specific?
A very big contract for delivery vehicles at the USPS
The USPS and drones!
(There’s a rant from me.)
The UPU Extraordinary Congress
What the USA will do next on Terminal Dues
Media reaction in the USA
How the USPS had been preparing for a possible UPU exit
Will other carriers benefit if USPS outbound rates go up?
Some other perspectives on the recent UPU discussions, including the debate’s domestic roots, counterfeiting, tensions between the USA and UN agencies, relations between the USA and China, FedEx, tariffs, the USA’s relationship with European nations
