Episode 39 - the postal service and smart cities

Ian Kerr

Letter volumes are falling all around the world, and postal operators are striving for new ways to make the most of their delivery fleets. A team of researchers at the USPS Office of Inspector General investigated the smart cities concept with this very issue in mind.

The USPS OIG has found ways that the postal service's delivery network could be used to collect data for smart city projects while doing deliveries. I chat with Jessica Raines and Jake Thomases, who were part of the team that authored the USPS OIG's smart cities report. We cover:

  • Five opportunities for the post to provide smart city services
  • Three business models so that the post will make money out of providing these services
