RISMEDIA, June 20, 2008-Cartus was recently presented with a 2007 Supplier Performance Award by the U.S. Postal Service (USPS) at a ceremony in Washington, D.C. The company was one of 12 leaders recognized by Postmaster General John Potter for helping the Postal Service operate at its best in delivering superior products and service to the American public. Cartus is the sole provider of relocation services to the USPS.
Susan Brownell, vice president of supply management at the Postal Service, said, “We’re very fortunate to work with such a dedicated group of suppliers. This year’s award winners have gone the extra mile to deliver excellence in supply chain management best practices.” Those practices led to more than $1 billion in cost benefits to the Postal Service in fiscal year 2007.
Cartus has provided relocation services to the Postal Service since 1992 and manages approximately 1,500 moves annually for the agency. The company handles a fully outsourced program for the Postal Service, which includes the delivery of policy counseling, expense administration, moving services and marketing assistance.
Voicing appreciation for the award, Cartus President and CEO, Kevin Kelleher, said, “This is the result of the strong partnership we have had with USPS over the past 16 years. Together, we find new ways to make the relocation experience smooth, deliver high levels of service to USPS stakeholders, and provide ongoing recommendations to drive down the cost of relocation. We view ourselves as an extension of USPS, providing the needed mobility for its key employees and allowing them to stay focused on their roles, while we handle their relocations. We appreciate the great trust placed upon us and are delighted to serve those who serve us so faithfully.”
