U.S. Post Office Testing Same-Day E-Commerce Delivery

Metro Post, a new service from the U.S. Post Office, takes its first steps in November, as the USPS enters territory currently being explored by Wal-Mart and Amazon.com in offering same-day delivery. Bloomberg News said this test will begin in San Francisco, according to a Post Office representative. Unlike those gigantic retailers, who are testing same-day delivery for their own offerings, the USPS will offer its Metro Post service to e-commerce businesses that meet certain qualifications.
