USPS was able to offset slowing parcel volume growth and falling mail volumes through rate increases to achieve 0.7% revenue growth in 2019.

Total parcels and express volumes grew 0.3% in 2019, with volumes falling in the final two quarters of the year. However, rate increases allowed USPS to record a 6.1% increase in parcels revenue, with faster growth targeted for 2020. As part of its parcels growth strategy, the post will look to leverage its last-mile delivery network to support expanded Sunday, next-day and same-day delivery.
