The United States Postal Service provided new service performance data today to the House Committee on Oversight and Reform and the Senate Homeland Security and Governmental Affairs Committee, indicating continued improvement while ensuring trucks run on time and adhering to the Postal Service’s existing transportation schedule.

This data, available through the week of August 29, marks an uptick in service performance, consistent with recent trends. The percentages reported – 88.04 for First-Class Mail, 89.56 for Marketing Mail and 78.24 for Periodicals – represent service performance by the Postal Service from acceptance of a mailpiece into our system through delivery, measured against published service standards.

The Postal Service remains committed to improving service performance for the American public, delivering mail and packages to 160 million addresses – covering every state and territory, county, city, town and rural area in the country – six days a week.
