Embracing ‘the USO’

Universal Service Opportunities for the Global Postal-Parcel Ecosystem

Leaders’ in Logistics are delighted to be partnering with Postal Vision 2020, a two day gathering in Washington DC focused on the US Postal ecosystem. The theme of the event is Reinventing the American Postal Ecosystem of the Future. Since 2011 Postal Vision have been engaging stakeholders from all across the postal platform and beyond in a critical conversation about what future generations should have in the way of Postal Services in America.

There is a lot at stake in all this! No other commercial brand or enterprise can claim every American citizen and resident as its customer. No other physical distribution network comes close to providing as many access locations (30+ thousand) or reaching as many business and residential delivery points (150+ million). We all depend upon the USPS in one way or another. We are all its stakeholders and as citizens we own it. And, we are collectively responsible for its success, or its failure.
