PRC Issues Advisory Opinion Analyzing USPS Plan to Change USPS Service Standards

The Commission’s range of potential net savings estimates is lower than that projected by the Postal Service. The Commission’s Advisory Opinion concludes that the Postal Service could significantly reduce its network and realize substantial cost savings while preserving most current service levels.
