The United States Postal Service (USPS) is the core of our nation’s $1.4 trillion mailing industry, which employs 7.5 million Americans. Last year, the USPS delivered more than 5.7 billion packages to 157 million addresses. Package delivery is a profitable, growing industry for USPS, and serves as an economic lifeline for businesses and consumers in remote and rural areas who have no affordable alternatives.

The Package Coalition is made up of some of America’s leading retail companies including: Columbia Sportswear, Zappos, Express Scripts, Pitney Bowes, Amazon, Publishers Clearing House, Ballard Designs, QVC, Zulily, OSM Worldwide, Home Shopping Network, Garnet Hill, the National Retail Federation, and more.
