    oh isnt this just great, we're running out of money and they decide to put GPS in the trucks -- WHAT NEXT!?!? To improve safey, and that service word that isnt around anymore. Unbelieveable! Who is running this place anymore. Its ok to have the carriers run all over town to do overtime and the almighty pivoting, but lets install GPS in the trucks to save what again. God help us!!

    The USPS has found that they can save thousands of dollars by holding the carriers accountable for staying on the route, stopping where instructed and finding inefficiencies in routing. The ROI on the investment has been many times greater than the investment and is making money for the Post Office far above the investment. Accountability is important to run any fleet efficiently.
