Issues Identified:

  • Issues 1:
    • Inconsistent communication disseminated from various sources within the USPS and mailing industry as to what has occurred and what should be done to avoid problems in the affected areas.
    • There should be one location identified as a placeholder where the mailing industry can go to find relevant information concerning the event, and various ways to communicate that information should be considered. Currently the website is preferred vehicle, but it is not user friendly and needs enhancements
  • Issue 2:
    • Impacted mail recipients receive inconsistent or incomplete information on the impact of a mail embargo to their business or residence.
  • Issue 3:
    • There should be more efficient way to take advantage of the current technology available to implement a resolution process to return mail to affected areas as soon as possible.
    • Enhancements to or a product developed with the functionality to replace the Mail Restoration Program is required.

Recommendations Identified:

  • Issue 1:
    • In times of Emergency or Disaster, establish efficient communications to the mailing industry (Mail Owner, Service Provider, Vendor, and Logistics Provider). The BSN should be the owner of this information and responsible for it being properly communicated.
  • Issue 2:
    • In times of Emergency or Disaster, establish effective communications to the mailing customer. Location, Mail Class and anticipated duration of impacts should be considered as a standard format in the communications.
  • Issue 3:
    • In time of Emergency or Disaster, utilize technology to the extent possible in update and validation of address related information.

Next Steps:

  • It is recommended that the USPS take a close look at the individual recommendations and decide what issues can be resolved quickly and efficiently.
    • The workgroup did not make specific recommendations on when the USPS should implement these suggestions; however, it would be highly recommended to implement some of the changes prior to the next Hurricane season.

Next Steps cont.:

  • The industry leaders also recommend that the BSN begin to address the current communication issues related to the Hurricane Katrina/Rita and other service related issues listed on the website in order to help finalize messaging prior to the next emergency (that could occur).
    • By doing this, the USPS would be better prepared to act in a well defined and efficient manner as opposed to reacting to an emergency.
    • Also, the changes that are recommended to better disclose instructions on can provide immediate benefit for the current issues that are left over from Hurricane Katrina/Rita.
