    Board of Governors Briefed on Third Quarter Performance & Financial Results


    National on-time performance scores for the delivery of First-Class Mail were at all-time highs in the third quarter of fiscal year 2007 for all three of the categories the Postal Service tracks. Overnight service was 96 percent on-time, up from 95 percent the same period last year. Two-day service was 93 percent on-time and three-day service was 91 percent on-time.

    First-Class Mail performance, presented today during the Postal Service Board of Governors meeting, is measured independently by IBM Global Business Services. The process measures First-Class Mail from the time it’s deposited into a collection box or lobby mail chute until it’s delivered to a home or business.

    “I’m very proud of our third quarter performance,” said Postmaster General Jack Potter. “Our performance is at an all time high and this is the first time that a 93 percent on-time score has been achieved for two-day national performance.”

    Five districts led the nation with a 97 percent on-time score for overnight delivery. They are the Dakotas, Greensboro, Big Sky, Louisiana and Northland districts.

    During the same period, national residential customer satisfaction was at 92 percent, as measured by the Gallup Organization. Eight districts earned scores of 96 percent or better for customer satisfaction — Albany, Maine, Southeast Michigan, Massachusetts, Western New York, Greater Michigan, Dakotas and Hawkeye.

    Third Quarter Financial Results
    Also during today’s Board of Governors meeting, Chief Financial Officer Glen Walker said revenue for the third quarter totaled $18.4 billion, up 2.9 percent from the same period last year. Expenses for the quarter totaled $19.1 billion, including $878 million that is attributable to the implementation of the Postal Accountability and Enhancement Act signed into law the end of last year. The result was a $659 million net loss for the third quarter.

    Total factor productivity (TFP) once again continued its upward trend in the third quarter, increasing by 1.8 percent, with year-to-date TFP up 1.4 percent.
