Linns The Postal Regulatory Commission has sharply criticized the United States Postal Service for failing to meet its own delivery standards and directed it to take corrective actions to offer better service on its primary products. The commission was especially critical of first-class mail troubles in fiscal year 2021 (which ended Sept. 30, 2021), saying it was the seventh year in a row that no first-class mail category achieved its service performance goal. Michael Plunkett, president of the Association for Postal Commerce, said: “At the end of the day, the PRC laments continued failure to produce results, but falls back on the same solutions that have never worked: higher price increases and expressions of concern.”
