“Endicia Praises USPS for its E-Commerce Initiative” in Supply Chain Management Review
By Patrick Burnson, Executive Editor
Shippers concerned that they will have fewer express transport options once the United States Postal Service (USPS) ceases Saturday deliveries have nothing to fear, said Amine Khechfe, Endicia co-founder and general manager.
“Given the increased projections of ecommerce overall, we expect the parcel shipping segment to continue to grow,” he said. “To support this growth, USPS plans to continue delivering packages on Saturdays, without the surcharges typically tagged on by the private carriers.”
In an interview with SCMR, Khechfe said he recently met with Patrick R. Donahoe, Postmaster General and CEO, who told him that USPS was moving its concentration from letters to parcels as part of an ongoing strategy to recover its loses and be placed on a positive revenue position.
