How Amazon Could Save the U.S. Postal Service

Honestly, I'm not sure anyone can save the USPS but, if anyone can do it, it would be a company like Amazon.

The postal service still has miles to go before becoming Amazon’s courier of choice. The pilot program is limited to delivering a maximum of 200 packages per day to customers of’s sister brands, which sell popcorn, cookies, chocolate and gift baskets. Friess says the USPS is planning to add more retailers soon. If the test is successful, which he says the agency believes it will be, Metro Post will roll out to other large markets across the country.
