USPS Broadens Definition Of “Mail” To Include Groceries

September 4, 2014: 12:00 AM EST
The U.S. Postal Service, beset by continuing financial problems as Internet technologies eat into its core business, has launched a 60-day food delivery test with Amazon.com’s AmazonFresh unit. For the test, USPS is delivering insulated packages of meat, dairy, produce and other groceries to customers in San Francisco between 3 a.m. and 7 a.m, when its trucks are not delivering mail. AmazonFresh already delivers groceries in its hometown Seattle, and other cities. Postmaster General Patrick Donahoe said USPS, which handles 35 percent of Amazon’s packages, is very interested in grocery delivery, noting that Amazon is “an excellent, excellent customer and an excellent partner”.
