U.S. Postal Service
Both literally and figuratively, the United States Postal Service delivers for America.
Even in an increasingly digital world, the Postal Service remains part of the bedrock infrastructure of this nation’s economy, serving its people and businesses and
the nation together.
The core function of the Postal Service is the safe, reliable, affordable delivery of mail
and packages to every address in the country and its territories.
The Postal Service delivers more mail to more addresses in a larger geographical area
than any other post in the world.
The timely service provided daily depends on an astonishing network of facilities,
technology and people that collect, transport, process and deliver the nation’s mail.
