US senator Cory Booker has introduced the Postal Innovation Act to support the modernization of United States Postal Service (USPS) vehicles by incorporating more cost-efficient and environmentally friendly technology. This includes finding ways to reduce fuel consumption by up to 2% a year and investing collision-averting technologies for every vehicle.

The act will also allow USPS to investigate the economic benefits of non-postal related services such as public wi-fi internet access, warehousing, internet voting, beer and wine shipment and the experimental market testing of postal products.

Booker said, “At a time when budgets are tight, it is in our best interest to find creative ways to make prudent investments that improve safety, reduce the carbon footprint of postal vehicles and save taxpayers money. The Postal Innovation Act will help the postal service identify efficient and innovative technologies to better serve Americans.”
