Las Vegas Mail: Postal Service Should Join Forces With Competitors

(11/17/2015)

It’s not secret that the United States Postal Service has been facing stiff competition from its peers in the industry such as FedEX and UPS. With the busiest time of the year for Las Vegas mail quickly approaching, the U.S Postal Service’s Inspector General is suggesting a partnership with its competition in the private sector. Would Las Vegas mail benefit from such a partnership between competitors? Some experts suggest it would.

John C. Panzar, an economics professor at the University of Auckland in New Zealand agrees with the U.S. Postal Service’s Inspector General, suggesting such a “co-opetition” would benefit everyone involved with Las Vegas mail. This potential joint venture could result in a “win-win” scenario for both the Postal Service and its peers in the private sector.

Under the proposed “co-opetition” agreement, the private parcel services would handle the processing and transport of orders, but the Postal Service would utilize its efficient delivery system. The good professor theorizes that this partnership will allow both entities to lower their overhead costs by focusing on their own strengths as well as drive costs down for the Las Vegas mail consumer, an overall win.
