USPS Shipping Equity Act Day of Action

On Tuesday, July 19, NALC and other postal stakeholders are hosting a day of action urging members of Congress to cosponsor the USPS Shipping Equity Act (H.R. 3287/S. 1663). Click here to contact your members of Congress.

Current law prohibits the Postal Service from shipping alcoholic goods, making private shippers such as FedEx and UPS the only option for wineries, breweries and other producers to have goods delivered directly to customers. This bill would allow USPS to ship these beverages and would generate an estimated $190 million annually in new revenue for the Postal Service.
