New USPS System Ranks Air Carrier Routes for Best Value

Share this content:
The U.S. Postal Service said yesterday that it has developed a system that allows it to fly the mail on the best-value route. The effort, developed in a partnership between Network Operations Management and Information Technology department, is called Air Optimizer.


The process includes identifying backup routes for contingency purposes. New USPS contracts for commercial air transportation took effect in June 2003, and air carriers' performance is now tracked and carriers must provide superior service in order to continue to be assigned mail by the USPS.
