The United States Postal Service (USPS) operates a complex logistics operation to transport mail and equipment between its mail processing and delivery facilities. While some of the local transportation service within the larger metropolitan areas is provided by postal employees, most of the network is serviced by highway contract suppliers. The complexity of the network requires continuous adaptations, resulting in requests for new service, or contract modifications. Transportation purchasing in the USPS environment requires technically skilled and knowledgeable personnel who specialize in the commodity, and that are well versed in procurement, contract administration, and contract law.
