Given a declining need for letter delivery on the one hand and an increasing need for e-commerce driven parcel delivery on the other, the nation’s residential delivery ecosystem is facing a critical challenge to serve growing consumer expectations for greater speed, privacy, security and trust.  The nation’s postal delivery ecosystem needs to be re-envisioned and new systems put into place to accommodate changing 21st century societal demands.  That’s the focus of the fourth annual PostalVision 2020 Conference that will host experts from around the U.S. and the world April 10-11, at the Westin City Center in Washington, D.C.
