    I think you left an "S" out of your Thread Title. Their is a big difference between UPS and USPS. The first guys have the brown trucks, remember?

    Another loss here.

    I fail to see how delays and rerouting can be in the best interst or welfare of the animals. Seems to me if you have dry ice on board they could reroute that shipment and deliver the animals as agreed to.

    The dry ice won't mind being held in "cold storage" for another day whereas the bees or chickens might be dead.

    If you have a few minutes, I suggest you write in and oppose this change. Sounds like they already have their mind made up by the statement "that we are exempt, but welcome input." This is just a CYA statement by the postal service. They intend to go back to the Postmaster general and claim "hey we only had a small number of letters of objection - this shows that the impact will be small.

    Let's try to make it hard for them to say that.

    It's a Government operation. Paper is the way things are done.

    Email would be intentionally lost in this case.
