Historic Fulfillment Services: USPS

1908ruralcarrier“Neither snow nor rain nor heat nor gloom of night stays these couriers from the swift completion of their appointed rounds.” These words, inscribed on the James Farley Post Office in New York City, have since become a sort of unofficial motto for the United States Postal Service, one of the biggest fulfillment services in the country. Their mission? To deliver a trusted, universal postal service for the nation.

The postal service is one of the few government agencies authorized by the United States Constitution in its founding iteration. Benjamin Franklin was appointed the first Postmaster General in 1775. Today, the USPS is the largest postal system in the world, processing over 155.4 billion pieces of mail and delivering them to over 154 million addresses. They move what amounts to 40% of the entire world’s mail!

Fulfilling all those deliveries requires the USPS to employ over 600,000 people, making it the third largest civilian employer in the country, and they operate the largest civilian fleet of vehicles in the world. USPS employees are passionate and dedicated to their work – it’s one reason the informal postal motto became so popular.

How do they fulfill their promise to move all that mail? See how it works in this quick video.
