    UPS and the U.S. Postal Service reached agreement on a deal that will put mail on planes of the package-delivery company and could improve the post office's reliability, The Wall Street Journal reported, citing unnamed people familiar with the matter said.

    Hey thats good news. Help the postal service improve their delivery times while we still are struggling to get the air here before 9:15 or later.

    Why not!

    "If UPS is successful, it could be in a strong position to compete for some or all of the postal business now handled by FedEx Corp. (NYSE:FDX - news) when that $1.3 billion annual contract comes up for renewal in 2007, the newspaper said."

    This is a great opportunity for us to gain additional profits, and it is even better if we take it from FEDEX.

    This is not new. We've been flying mail for the post office for well over a year. The company is attempting to take a much bigger slice out of the Fed-Ex mail service. The contract is big bucks. It basically gets processed as air cargo, no sorting and very minimal handeling is done by UPS employees.

    Best part of this is that Fred no longer has a free ride with USPS. Next contract to haul their little letters will be competitive and even if FredEx wins it, it will be a lot less lucrative because it will be a competitive bid and not just "pick a price."
