without comments

In a strategic organizational shift designed to achieve long-term business objectives, PMG Jack Potter today announced realignments within two groups representing key areas of revenue growth for USPS.

The Expedited Shipping and Ground Shipping groups have merged into a single Shipping Services group. Potter has named Gary Reblin, formerly vice president, Expedited Shipping, to lead the unified group as vice president, Shipping Services.

Also, USPS has formed the Product Visibility and Operational Performance group to develop a world-class customer information platform through scanning technologies and product tracking services. Potter named Jim Cochrane, formerly vice president, Ground Shipping, to lead the new group as vice president, Product Visibility and Operational Performance.

BOL/8125 Success!

with one comment

We expect to hear an announcement at the Mailer’s Technical Advisory Committee General Session today that will detail USPS plans to concede and begin signing Bills of Lading again. When the announcement is made I will update here with details. A DMM Advisory is also supposed to be published on the subject. This is great news for mail transportation services companies that have been scrambling since the USPS arbitrarily began refusing to sign the BOLs earlier this year. Kudos to Norine Butte from NASML (and other industry leaders too) for leading the charge, and for being diligent in keeping the pressure on the Postal Service to discuss with the industry, and come up with a good solution.
