Suppliers, in demand

Chief Financial Officer Joe Corbett addresses honorees at a ceremony in Washington, DC.

USPS recently honored 16 businesses for supplying the organization with outstanding service.

The Supplier Performance Award recipients are chosen from among 20,000 companies that do business with the Postal Service each year.

The honorees received awards in multiple categories, including innovation, diversity and sustainability.

“To receive one of these awards is a real accomplishment,” Chief Financial Officer Joe Corbett told the recipients at a ceremony in Washington, DC.

“Speaking for the Postal Service, I can say we’re one of your most satisfied customers — not only because we depend on your products and services to help us move forward, but because of your creativity and achievement.”

Supply Management VP Susan Brownell, who hosted the ceremony, praised the honorees for helping USPS better serve its customers.

“Our suppliers play a vital role in helping the Postal Service grow its business by delivering quality products and services, innovation and exceptional value,” she said.
