LONG BEACH : Teamwork Brings 90% Overnight Mail Rate

October 20, 1994

Long Beach continues to receive some of the nation's speediest mail delivery, according to a recent survey.

At least 90% of overnight letters that were mailed within the city reached their destinations on time, according to a survey from May 28 to Sept. 16 by Price Waterhouse.

Postal service officials in the city attributed the high ranking to teamwork between the city's mail carriers and workers in its central distribution plant. "We have a lot of carriers and clerks who are working together," Long Beach postmaster Ed Jenkins said.

He added that it is the third consecutive time the city has ranked among the top performers in delivering mail on time.

The national average for on-time, overnight delivery was 82%, according to the report. At least 85% of the overnight letters were delivered on time in 41 cities.
