What is USPS?

USPS stands for the United States Postal Service, an essential federal agency responsible for delivering mail and packages across the United States and its associated territories. This organization plays a crucial role in ensuring the flow of communication and goods, making it a backbone of American society.

The origins of the USPS can be traced back to 1792 when it was established as the Post Office Department. This creation marked the formalization of mail services in the United States, ensuring that people across the growing nation could send and receive letters and parcels efficiently. The Post Office Department was part of the federal government, reflecting the importance of mail delivery in uniting the country.

In 1970, the Post Office Department underwent a significant transformation. It was restructured and renamed the United States Postal Service (USPS) under the Postal Reorganization Act. This change aimed to modernize the postal system, making it more efficient and self-sustaining. As an independent establishment of the executive branch of the U.S. government, USPS operates like a business, but it is mandated to serve every American, regardless of geography, at uniform price and quality.
