Network Rationalization Update, with detailed schedule of changes

As for the total savings, the debate over the numbers has never been resolved. The Postal Service’s own estimates have been revised downward several times, but it has always maintained the plan would result in significant savings. The PRC advisory opinion expressed considerable skepticism about the market research on revenue losses, and without a reliable estimate for the losses incurred by slowing down the mail, it’s really impossible to say how much the plan will save.

It’s clear, however, that the plan will never save anything like the original estimate of $3 billion. Yet the Postal Service’s website nonetheless continues to cite that number. Whether that’s a clerical error, wishful thinking, or willful misinformation, who knows?
