What Savings has USPS Achieved with the Operational Window Change?

On January 5, 2015, the Postal Service revised its First-Class Mail (FCM) service standards, eliminating single-piece overnight FCM service and shifting some mail from a 2-day to a 3-day service standard. This allowed the Postal Service to expand its mail processing operational window, process mail on fewer machines, and reduce facility space.
