(Best Syndication News) - Today, the US Postal Service announced proposals that could help turn their operations around financially. The proposals include downsizing their operations and slowing mail delivery down for some First-Class Mail delivery times.

The USPS said they needed to reduce their operational expenditures by $20 billion by 2015 to return to a profitable status. To do this, the agency is proposing consolidation of the postal network. This would mean closing some facilities, which would eliminate processing equipment, vehicles, and employees. They project an annual savings of $2.1 billion annually by doing this downsizing. By 2015, the USPS expects to save up to $3 billion annually.
