NSRMCA is the national trade association for the surface transportation companies that contract with the United States Postal Service to move mail and packages between USPS facilities throughout the nation. Its members include multi-generational family-owned businesses, some of the nation’s largest trucking and logistics companies, and small trucking operations based throughout the United States. Collectively, NSRMCA members manage at least $4 billion in USPS transportation contracts.

The United States Postal Service is undergoing one of the most significant changes in corporate history. The Delivering for America plan calls for extensive capital investments, a complete network redesign, and significant changes to how the Postal Service contracts for and manages transportation.

  • Currently enrolled in an accredited college or university.
  • Effective writing and analytical skills to summarize industry issues and developments.

  • Willingness to dive into unfamiliar topics and understand how they impact NSRMCA members.

  • Confidence in public speaking and facilitating discussions with NSRMCA staff and members.
