Why USPS Cost-Cutting Doesn't Always Make Sense
The USPS has plans to install curbside and cluster mailboxes in neighborhoods as a cost saving measure. A report from the USPS Office of Inspector General (OIG) shows consumers do not like the idea.
The OIG, working with InfoTrends, surveyed 5,000 households across the country. The survey found that among the recipients that did not already have a cluster box, a majority would be displeased if their mail receptacle were changed to a locked cluster box.
Specifically, the survey found most customers (63.3 percent) who currently do not have cluster box delivery say they would be displeased if their delivery was moved to a cluster box, and only 17.2 percent indicate they would be pleased by such a move. For more, click here.
