Neopost USA, a provider of hardware and software solutions to mailers and shippers of all sizes, has urged the U.S. House of Representatives to review and enact the Postal Service Reform Act of 2016 that surfaced out of the House Oversight and Government Reform Committee in July.

The House Committee noted the need for legislation that would allow the United States Postal Service to improve efficiency, manage burdensome pre-funded healthcare costs, and streamline its governance; in essence, to function as a competitive organization. “The USPS would rank among the top 50 of the Fortune 500 if given the opportunity to function as a for-profit entity,” Neopost USA’s Vice President, Postal Relations, and Shipping Product Management, Vincent J. DeAngelis, wrote in a letter sent to select members of the House on September 19.

“A strong postal service benefits the country,” DeAngelis wrote. “Easing the Postal Service’s financial burdens will help ensure a strong future for the Postal Service, preserve 7.5 million American jobs and build upon the $1.4 trillion industry the USPS supports.”

Neopost USA believes that Congressional action to enact the Postal Reform Act will yield three enormous benefits: The American people will continue to enjoy world-class postal services, dedicated postal employees will be able to manage their business professionally while ensuring the financial well-being of their families and Congress will be seen as willing and able to take care of the people’s business.

Neopost USA encourages every American to instruct his or her representative to pass the pending Postal Reform Act. Contact information for individual members of the House of Representatives is available at http://www.house.gov/representatives/find/
