To assess the effectiveness of the Terminal Handling Services (THS) used to sort and transport mail for the Postal Service in the Southern Area.
The Postal Service uses THS suppliers to load mail into FedEx air containers and deliver them to FedEx for transportation across the nation.
THS suppliers also transport incoming FedEx air containers to THS facilities and transfer mail from the containers into mail transport equipment containers for the Postal Service to pick-up and deliver to designated mail processing facilities.
The Postal Service currently has contracts with nine THS suppliers at 69 locations nationwide.
