The Postal Service has renewed its Air Cargo Network contract with FedEx.
The four-year renewal extends the contract through Sept. 29, 2024.
The contract began Oct. 1, 2013, and provides domestic air transportation for U.S. Mail, Priority Mail and Priority Mail Express.
This contract modification aligns capacity with postal demand, provides operational flexibility and service enhancements, and results in reduced costs for USPS.
FedEx is the largest provider of air transportation capacity to the Postal Service, which has had a longstanding business relationship with the company since 2001.
