Package Coalition Supports Legislation To Crackdown on Shipments of Opioid and Illegal Drugs Distributed Via USPS

Washington, D.C. - The Package Coalition, a diverse group of America’s leading retailers, e-commerce and logistics companies, commends Senator Gary Peters for today’s introduction of the U.S. Postal Service Opioid & Illicit Drug Strategy Act.  The bill requires the U.S. Postal Service (USPS) to make publicly available its comprehensive organization strategy to combat distribution, analyze programs and suggest improvements and submit its report to Congress and the Office of National Drug Control Policy every two years.

“Drug traffickers use USPS and other private sector shipping carriers to deliver opioids and other illicit drugs. As the most important package delivery service in the country, it is critical that USPS inform the public of its national efforts to stop illegal drug distribution. The Package Coalition applauds Senator Peters’ commitment to ending this illegal and dangerous practice,” said Secretary John McHugh, Chairman of the Package Coalition.
