Over the years PSA’s members and Washington DC Team have delivered hundreds of millions of dollars in results for our industry. PSA has the best Washington Team in the postal association business. It is led by Pierce Myers (Executive VP), a recipient of the Postmaster Generals prestigious Partnership for Progress award, who has 25 years working on Capitol Hill and at the Postal Regulatory Commission (PRC). SLS Consulting, the best economic team in the Postal Industry, has supported PSA since 2001. The results:

  • PSA lobbying secured the availability of contract rates between the Postal Service and mailers and ensured that those deals remain confidential
  • PSA efforts historically resulted in lower prices, and substantial saving for parcels shippers ("The rate reductions PSA just won reduced my postage increase by 25%. I will save hundreds of thousands." Member Quote.)
  • Service standards and performance measurement driving reliable delivery to your customers
  • Intelligent Mail Package Barcode (IMPB) and true visibility throughout for shippers and customers.
