Innovation in the USPS:
Postage stamps may only be little pieces of colorfully printed paper however their invention and use has allowed mail industries around the world to grow into huge, multi billion dollar industries.
Billions of postage stamps are prolifically used across the world in practically every country to ensure that shipping has been paid and that the package is ready for delivery to the recipients, wherever they may be.
Today all stamps have a value printed on it, in the currency of the issuing country and depending on how far and fast the package has to travel as well as the weight of the package all affects postage costs.
In the United States the responsibility of administering the nation’s mail system is held by The United States Postal Service or the USPS, the successor to the former United States Mail, which was initiated as far back as 1775.
Under the current system once mail is addressed and the appropriate value of postage stamp is attached, the rest of the grunt work is then down to the USPS. They handle everything else.
The USPS takes this responsibilities very seriously and with 625,113 dedicated men and women under their employ every piece of mail is well looked after.
