Potter Reviews Growth of Several USPS Programs at BOG Meeting

Share this content:
The U.S. Postal Service's Carrier Pickup program expands next week for a total of 204,000 city and rural carrier routes, Postmaster General John E. Potter told the postal service's Board of Governors at its monthly meeting yesterday.

Carrier Pickup lets customers go online to request next-day package pickups. There is no pickup fee because packages are picked up from customers as part of the carrier's normal delivery route. Packages must be prepared with the appropriate postage and ready to go before they are picked up.

Potter also praised the recent success of Click-N-Ship Week, which took place at post offices nationwide March 22-26.

Click-N-Ship is an online service that allows customers to print and pay for labels. Click-N-Ship also calculates rates, located ZIP codes, and lets customers see their online shipping history.

"The results speak for themselves," said Potter, noting that online revenue for Click-N-Ship grew 216 percent during March.

Potter also noted the deployment this week of the first Automated Postal Center in Dallas. The APC is a self-service kiosk offering access to postal products and services. It accepts most retail transactions, including sending packages and letters, buying stamps and searching for ZIP codes. APCs will be deployed at select locations across the country in coming months.
