Postal Service to release third-quarter numbers Friday. Here’s how the agency has been trending.

Ahead of the Postal Service’s Aug. 11 release of its financial report covering the third quarter of Fiscal Year 2014, The Washington Post took a look at how USPS has been doing so far. The story referred to the “continued turnaround” of the agency, noted how its “recent improvement” is due largely to increases in package delivery, and called pre-funding “one of the biggest drags on USPS finances.”
