USPS Customer Connect Brings in $112 Million

Share this article:
Since its nationwide rollout two years ago, the U.S. Postal Service's Customer Connect program has brought in $112 million, the agency said yesterday.


The joint effort between the National Association and Letter Carriers and the USPS is designed to leverage letter carriers' relationships with their patrons to encourage small- and medium-sized businesses on their routes to try USPS products and services.


Nearly 3,000 post offices across 80 districts are participating in the program. Carriers with 10 or more businesses on their routes are encouraged to submit two leads a month. Currently, the USPS is emphasizing its Priority Mail service.


According to the NALC's October 2005 Postal Record publication, the lead that topped $100 million mark was submitted by Meg Wilson, a member of St. Louis branch, for Integrated Network Cable, Chesterfield, MO. The company soon will mail 100 Priority Mail parcels a day for the next 12 months.
