USPS, Department of Defense Contract Military Mail Service

Share this content:
The U.S. Postal Service and the Department of Defense announced last week a contract with Kalitta Air to provide an end-to-end network solution for all mail to civilian and military personnel stationed in the Middle East and Persian Gulf.


The deal calls for Kalitta Air to provide mail transportation to Kalitta's hub in Bahrain, mail security, all terminal handling and transportation to 10 other major Defense Department hubs serving operations in Iraq, Afghanistan and Kuwait.


The contract begins in February.


Paul Vogel, vice president of network operations management for the USPS, says the agreement will help improve the efficiency, speed of delivery and security of military postal services.


The Postal Service currently dispatches 200,000 pounds of military mail to the Persian Gulf each day aboard Boeing 747s configured to carry freight.
