      Why can't the Postal Service do this again? I am a MVS driver and new trucks would be nice..... Mack To Provide More Than 1,400 Trucks by End of 2006 LEHIGH VALLEY, PA (August 1, 2005) - Mack Trucks, Inc. announced today that it has been awarded a contract for more than 1,400 trucks by the United States Postal Service. The award calls for the company to provide 1,180 units of its Vision™ highway model and 226 of its MR vocational model by the end of 2006. The vehicles will be used at over 200 postal service locations across the country. "We are very proud that we were selected - it's a testament to the quality of the people throughout the Mack organization, as well as the high regard in which our products are held," said Kevin Flaherty, Mack senior vice president of sales. "We're particularly pleased with the number of Vision models in the contract. We're working very hard to grow our highway business. And we view this as a very significant step in that process." Mack has a long history of doing business with the Postal Service, dating back to the early 1990's. Since then, every new Class 8 truck the Postal Service has purchased has been a Mack. In addition to the vehicles, the contract calls for the company to provide an array of other services, including training. Mack's dealer and customer training, provided by its North American Institute operation, has consistently been rated number one in the industry. "We look forward to continuing what has been a productive and successful relationship with Mack," said Kathleen Burt, U.S. Postal Service Purchasing and Supply Management Specialist.

      I recommend that you instruct your carriers to actually DELIVER a package BEFORE they report it as delivered on your tracking site. I can assure you that despite this package arriving at the local post office on 8/27 and your CLAIM that it is delivered, it is NOT. This is the SECOND time this has happened. The first time, the package was collecting dust in the back room somewhere, NOT delivered. THIS one will fit in the mailbox so there are NO excuses that are acceptable. This is gross negligence. 9102999998910855562567

      On August 15 I submitted a "Hold Mail" request for my vacation in September , (17-21) On August 17 & 18 I received no mail, August 20, no mail on August 21 all my mail along with the hold card. DOES ANYONE KNOW HOW TO READ AT THE POST OFFICE? Usually when i hold mail it takes 2 phone calls to get it re started again. Maybe a Private Company needs to take over and Get it Together!
