Tysons, Va. – For the second year in a row, the U.S. Postal Service (USPS) has chosen LMI for a Supplier Performance Award for Supplier Excellence. Out of 12,400 suppliers, LMI is one of four recipients in the supplier excellence category, which recognizes exceptional quality and on-time delivery performance. LMI was recognized for our contributions to several strategic programs, including implementing updated program and portfolio management planning initiatives into the Postmaster General’s (PMG’s) Strategic Portfolio Planning. USPS estimates these new initiatives will save $40 million annually and generate more than $25 million in new yearly revenue. The initiatives have already added three new service offerings.

“LMI is grateful to once again receive the U.S. Postal Service Supplier Excellence Award. Our more than 20 year partnership is built around trust and a deep-rooted understanding of USPS’s mission and goals. We look forward to continuing to assist the postal service and their stakeholders for years to come while upholding the quality they have grown to trust and expect from us,” said Pete Pflugrath, executive vice president of LMI’s markets & growth organization.

LMI partners with USPS to meet multiple initiatives and benchmarks using complex enterprise systems implementation, logistics, financial, and program management support. LMI applied its expertise and flexibility to enable USPS to launch and manage its Integrated Logistics Ecosystem six months earlier than planned and deploy seven new Surface Transportation Centers in the Surface Transportation Network initiative. In addition, LMI helped implement, model, and design an automated fraud and detection system using machine learning. This system identifies and deflects fraudulent claims, resulting in thousands of dollars of savings for USPS.

“Our LMI team is honored to accept this Supplier Excellence Award that recognizes our dedication to the mission of the U.S. Postal Service. We are excited to partner with our USPS colleagues on their transformation journey to become the preferred delivery provider in America,” said Jeff Wehner, vice president of LMI’s civilian agencies submarket.

LMI was formally honored at the 32nd Annual Supplier Performance Awards Ceremony on July 21, 2022.
