'USPS Connect' launches at 44 Front Range post offices

Colorado is one of several states in the nationwide rollout to make the new services available.

DENVER — The U.S. Postal Service (USPS) has launched a new delivery service at 44 Front Range post offices.

Colorado is one of the first states to receive "USPS Connect," which will have same-day and next-day delivery options.

USPS said Connect has "four delivery solutions that leverage ongoing network improvements, new equipment, new pricing and enhanced operational precision to meet evolving business package delivery needs."

"I’m very excited for Colorado’s roll-out of USPS Connect," said Marcella Juarez-Rivera, manager of inside sales for USPS. "Rising fuel costs, schedule conflicts and the distance between customers can be a big deterrent for businesses. With USPS Connect Local, you will be able to provide local customers with same-day or next-day shipping, at low rates."

"USPS Connect provides businesses of all sizes what they have been asking for — an affordable way to meet consumer demand for fast delivery," said Louis DeJoy, postmaster general and CEO. "A pivotal point in our Delivering for America plan, it positions us to more fully leverage our network capacity to increase volume and revenue so we can continue to serve the American people with affordable, reliable mail and package delivery."

"We’ve listened carefully to our business customers to develop this program," said Jakki Krage Strako, USPS chief commerce and business solutions officer. "We’re increasing next-day deliveries. We’re also giving smaller businesses big-business rates and all businesses more user-friendly ways to interact with us."
