Transport companies and carriers lead USPS suppliers list

Thursday, March 23rd, 2017

Transport companies and carriers again feature heavily in Husch Blackwell’s recently-published Top 150 U.S. Postal Service Suppliers list.

All told, the US Postal Service (USPS) spent over $14bn in 2016 on outside purchases, about half of that for transportation.

The list – which was compiled by David Hendel, the leader of Husch Blackwell’s Postal Contracting team –  is based on data received in response to Freedom of Information Act requests.

Transport contractors fill half of the first ten spots on the Top 150 for fiscal year 2016 (which ended on 30 September).

FCA US, formerly known as Chrysler Group, was at number 4 with $270m in revenue. In April 2016, USPS agreed to purchase 9,113 Ram ProMaster commercial vans from FCA.

Rounding out the transport-related companies in the Top 10 are trucking companies Salmon Companies (number 5 with $242m), Eagle Express Lines (number 8 with $179m) and auto-supplier Wheeler Bros (number 9 with $177m). UPS was at number 11, with $161m.

Six of the companies ranked from 11 through to 20 also provide transport services to USPS.

The only company in the Top 10 not providing technology or transportation-related items is packaging products supplier Victory Packaging. Victory boxed up $221m in revenue, a $10m up on 2015.
