from a broader "green" perspective it makes more sense to have serviced mail delivery routes than it would to have all those householders or businesses driving to the post office to pick up their mail.
I lived in a remote rural area growing up and the post office is usually next door to the grocery story.
People drive in once a week and it's greener for us to make that trip once a week than the post office making it 6 days a week.
Unless the post office wants to delivery my groceries...
Now that I've brought that up, if the grocery stores and post office could strike a delivery deal we have one heck of a green distribution system.
