Shipping Items Timely to Prevent Overnight Shipping Costs

Community Member kudos icon + Community member

Even with advances in automation, federal agencies still need to ship out a lot of items everyday. There are deadlines established for most shipments.


Rather than waiting until the last minute to ship something, federal agencies should be mandated to ship immediately upon notification of the need for shipment.


This would save millions of federal dollars by preventing unnecessary overnight costs that many agencies incur because of procrastination or lack of effective planning.


This action would assist in giving the American People the Federal Government that they expect and deserve.

I agree to have my idea, not my name or information, posted online. YES
