The History Of USPS In Tennessee
Tennessee has borders with eight other states, Alabama, Arkansas, Georgia, Kentucky, Mississippi, Missouri, North Carolina and Virginia. The only other to have eight neighboring states is Missouri. With huge amounts of mail going in and out of Tennessee on transit to other states it is no surprise that the USPS has a huge presence throughout the state.
Since it got its independence the United States Postal Service has undergone many progressive changes and are today one of the most streamlined postal services of the world, using state of the art technology to ensure that more than 154 billion mail pieces they process each year, reaches their destinations intact.
Delivering that amount of mail is no small feat. Possessing the largest fleet of civilian vehicles in the world including over two hundred thousand cars and trucks. Just this year (2018) the USPS has began trialling electric postage trucks in cities to reduce city smog and lower emissions. Lets hope they are successful and can be used throughout the country.
