Superior suppliers
USPS honors 14 companies

The Postal Service recently honored 14 companies that provide the organization with superior service in technology, transportation and other areas.

The winning companies received awards in several categories, including supplier performance and supplier innovation. This year, a Postmaster General’s Supplier Award was introduced.

“The Postal Service does business with more than 20,000 suppliers each year. To receive one of these awards is a real achievement,” PMG Pat Donahoe told the honorees. “It’s essential that we have a world-class chain of suppliers to reduce our costs, strengthen our performance and consistently provide high levels of service to our customers.”

Supply Management VP Susan M. Brownell hosted the annual ceremony, which was held at postal headquarters in Washington, DC. “The focus that these suppliers have placed on continuous improvement has played a significant role in helping USPS create an agile supply chain that generates value and delivers high-quality service to our customers every day,” Brownell said.
