USPS gets PostalOne funding

The Postal Service's board of directors this month approved $10.1 million for the first phase of PostalOne'a USPS initiative to expand electronic transactions between the service and its business customers.

Through PostalOne, the service wants to build secure Internet connections for coordinating mail acceptance, payment, transportation and reporting, postal officials said.

During the first part of the three-phase project, USPS will develop electronic document and information access applications. In the next eight months, 50 of USPS' largest customers will begin exchanging information electronically with the Postal Service.
