Important Info in the USPS Optimization FAQs

“The earliest possible month in which the operations consolidation process could begin is March 2012.”
Lisa note:  In my opinion, operations consolidations are well underway. 

“The Postal Service’s January 2012 pricing changes will be implemented before any proposed service standard and operational changes would be made as a result of the network optimization plan… Pricing changes corresponding to network optimization wouldn’t be expected until after related service standard and operational changes are implemented.”

“The Network Distribution Center (NDC), Sectional Center Facility (SCF) and Destination Delivery Unit (DDU) structure is being evaluated. Potentially, there may be a modified pricing structure in 2013. That will be determined after the network changes are defined.”
Lisa note:  Consider a modified price structure a certainty in 2013…and I suspect it won’t involve better discounts or more drop ship savings opportunities.
