USPS Produces Special Study of Off-Shore Delivery Service Performance

http://www.prc.gov/prc-pages/library/detail.aspx?docketId=ACR2011&docketPart=Documents&docid=79176&docType=Library%20References&attrID=&attrName=

The Postal Regulatory Commission (PRC) included requirements for a special study in Order 292 and Order

465 as part of Rule 3055.7. The special study is required to evaluate final delivery service performance to the remote locations of Alaska, Honolulu and Caribbean Districts as compared to the service performance to the Gateway cities of Anchorage, Honolulu and San Juan. Because transit-time measurement already includes Single-Piece and Presort First-Class Mail, Standard Mail, and Package Services to and from all ZIP Codes in these areas, the PRC acknowledged that additional testing may only be needed in areas with insufficient mail volumes.
