    En garde, FedEx, UPS, and DHL … - DC Velocity

    The U.S. Postal Service is stepping up efforts to wrest a bigger share of the parcel delivery market from its private sector rivals. And this time around, it's trying a new tactic. In years past, the federal agency has typically challenged its competitors—FedEx, UPS, and DHL—on the basis of service (for example, by adding tracking and tracing capabilities for express and parcel shipments). Now, it's attacking on another front: pricing.

    The parcel side of USPS has always lost money and is funded by the price of postage stamps.
    They can spread the loss over their entire operation and raise postage rates at will.
    The constitution mandates a post office system,not a parcel service.
    Funny that UPS, that makes a profit, must fund it's competitor by paying taxes and the competitor does not have to meet the same standard.
