How the USPS System Works

Did you know the United States Postal Service handles hundreds of millions of mail pieces every day? Can you imagine the workforce and the machinery needed to handle all this? Just take a look at this pretty educational video.

Another fact is that the USPS is not funded by taxpayers’ money. It generates all of its revenues through its products. The USPS also employs over 600,000 workers, making it one of the largest employers in the U.S.

After watching the video, it’s amazing that most everything gets delivered on time and correctly. Though I admit, from time to time, I get my neighbor’s mail.
