USPS reportedly reassessing last-mile delivery deals with companies like Amazon

At a time when parcel deliveries are more essential than ever, the future of the United States postal service is very much in crisis. The President of the United States waged an individual war against the United States’ most beloved government agency, calling it a “joke” and insisting that it raise prices before it received the bailout arrangements that the White House granted to airlines and hotel industries.

The USPS contract with companies like Amazon has been a particularly sore point for Trump, who has had a long tradition with CEO Jeff Bezos. Trump has long accused the independent agency of giving the company business at heart, an accusation that the USPS has long denied.

Now, as the postal service tries to reconcile with its future. It has reportedly sought to partner with external consulting firms to reevaluate its last-mile delivery contracts for the company. As well as parcel services such as FedEx and UPS. The strategy was reported in the Washington Post, citing half a dozen anonymous sources.

The moves come before Louis DeJoy enters the postmaster’s general role. DeJoy is a businessman who is a close ally of Trump as well as the head of fundraising for the upcoming Republican National Convention in his hometown of North Carolina. In short, he is probably not the ideal person to take charge of if you are looking to return to the days of the USPS as a thriving independent agency. The postal service is probably trying to evaluate all the possible options in view of the change of leadership.

Neither the USPS nor the White House commented on the reports.
