About Postal Facts

United States Postal Service - March 16, 2023

The Postal Service delivers for America. You know that. But do you know exactly how much we deliver? Every day? Each year? Did you know we have programs designed to help the customers and communities we serve? That we are a seriously high-tech company but that we also have a Fleet of Feet? And did you know that the “ZIP” in ZIP Code is an acronym? You can find answers to these questions and so much more at facts.usps.com.

Our history goes all the way back to the founding of the nation. Postal Facts is a great place to learn about where we’ve been, where we are today and where we’re going tomorrow.

We’re proud to provide secure, reliable and affordable service to every address in the United States, its territories and its military and diplomatic installations worldwide. And consider this very important fact: Everyone in the United States and its territories has access to postal products and services and pays the same for a First-Class Mail postage stamp regardless of location.
