Peril or Prosperity – President’s USPS Restructuring Initiative to be Discussed at Post-Expo ’18

John Callan, founder, of PostalVision, will be chairing a special session at Post Expo, Hamburg, on October 11th, discussing the latest storm of speculations on whether privatization is indeed the right course of action for the USPS.

“The Executive Office of the President of the United States has proposed to restructure the U.S. Postal Service to return it to a sustainable business model or prepare it for future conversion from a Government agency into a privately-held corporation.”  These proposals have come under fierce criticism by some and welcome applause by others.

This sensitive topic will be discussed and debated by a balanced team of esteemed postal experts. On the panel are David C. Williams, Governor, USPS, USA; Elmar Toime, Postea Group, UK, and Thomas Baldry, Senior Vice President, International mail & International Relations, Deutsche Post/DHL,  Germany.

John Callan will lead the panel, as they contemplate what recommendations the President’s Task Force on the U.S Postal Service reforms will suggest and how they hope to achieve the goals they may set forth.

Some topics to be deliberated include the meaning of “Privatization;” looking at European models as examples; consideration of the USPS business model, workforce, operations, costs, and pricing; implications for the Global Postal Ecosystem and so much more.

Also, a true look at what is likely to happen when and how will be explored by this visionary panel.  The dialogue which will emerge from this session will be invaluable to all who are anticipating what is next for USPS.
