(Washington Post) The Postal Regulatory Commission on Thursday approved a plan for the U.S. Postal Service to deliver groceries in San Francisco as part of a test project that could one day expand into a nationwide program.
USPS has already tested the grocery-delivery plan in the San Francisco area through a partnership with Amazon.com, averaging 160 deliveries per day in 38 Zip codes, according to the agency.
Under the new two-year trial run, USPS would work with retail partners to deliver groceries to homes between 3 a.m. and 7 a.m. Participating stores would have to drop off their orders at post offices between 1:30 a.m. and 2:30 a.m.
