The United States Postal Service (USPS) awarded Matheson Postal Services with another large contract which extends across the west coast. The new contract, which began August 1 and will continue for four years, will include about 9 million miles of transportation, which will add to the accelerated growth Matheson has experienced in recent years. In considering environmental sustainability, the company plans to execute transportation needs with all CNG tractors.
Matheson Companies President and CEO, Mark Matheson said, “Every new contract is an opportunity to implement improvements that will allow us to keep our 99% on-time track record. Ultimately, it’s an opportunity to show our customers why they choose us first.”
For Chief Operating Officer, Charles Mellor, the contract is a reflection of the effort that Matheson exerts in delivering quality, on-time service to its customers. “Hard work goes into this, which is why we are able to succeed in what we do at such unprecedented rates,” he said. “We truly appreciate that our customer recognizes this. To know we have been able to develop such a trust-based relationship with the United States Postal Services is the ultimate compliment.”
According to the United States Postal Service facts website, the first Postmaster General was appointed in 1775. Since then, the United States Postal Service has grown to process and deliver over 493 million mail pieces each day. With over 155 million delivery points, the USPS not only delivers mail to every address in America, but it also handles almost 50% of the entire world’s mail. Billions of people are positively impacted by the services provided, which is why the Matheson leaders are committed to helping any way they can.
