WASHINGTON, June 28 (UPI) -- The U.S. Postal Service has hired United Parcel Service to fly its mail to and from 98 U.S. cities.
The three-year agreement, which includes the option for a two-year extension, calls for UPS to transport primarily First Class and Priority mail, the Postal Service said Wednesday.
Service under the contract will begin July 1, 2006. Postal Service customers will see no change in the way their mail is delivered as the result of this contract. Post Office retail operations are also unaffected.
