Don't you think it’s time to talk about some good news?
Lot’s of you wrote last month that lobbies, plants and mail satchels were full. And lots you were noticed Priority flat-rate boxes seemed to be a big hit, thanks to some smart advertising (Thanks Al!)
Well, the numbers are in and it’s all true.
Nationwide, Priority Mail revenue was up 12.7 percent for the month of December. Out of every ten packages sent, eight of them were sent Priority Mail. And our walk-in revenue was up 1.5 percent. Not bad in a sour economy.
Total First-Class Mail cancellations still topped 3.1 billion for the month, which was only down about three percent.
What do you think? Is this good news? Can we build on this for the future? Drop me a note here.
