Test Driving Left-Hand Drive Vehicles

It’s not easy to find something the entire postal community can agree on. But the U.S. Postal Service’s need to replace its delivery vehicles just might get all heads nodding.

Given package volume growth, the Postal Service needs vehicles with increased cargo-handling capacity to replace the existing fleet of left hand drive (LHD) vehicles, many of which have exceeded their end-of-life projections. They also have expensive ongoing operating costs that exceed the vehicles’ value.

 

Recycling and Reducing Trash

Remember when trash was just trash? Today, waste management is smart business. 

Some years ago, the U.S. Postal Service recognized it could spin trash into gold, so to speak. It could save money by reducing trash disposal costs and generate revenues by turning trash into recyclables. With its economies of scale, it could maximize benefits by investing in capital equipment and best practices to achieve productivity gains that reduce material handling costs.
