USPS taps Ryder to mail it in

Even the United States Postal Service (USPS), reportedly the world’s largest provider of mailing and delivery services, has caught the 3PL (third-party logistics) fever. The USPS has awarded a multi-year contract to Ryder System Inc. to develop and manage a customized transportation solution to optimize the USPS’ Non-Mail Freight transportation network nationwide, supporting USPS locations nationally and internationally.

Ryder will provide transportation procurement, shipment planning and execution, compliance management and other related services.

The rollout is expected to be complete in November 2005.
