The term "mail carrier" came to be used as a gender-neutral substitute for "mailman" soon after women began performing the job. In the Royal Mail, the official name changed from "letter carrier" to "postman" in 1883, and "postwoman" has also been used for many years... United States In the United States, the official label for a mail carrier is "letter carrier". There are three types of letter carriers: city letter carriers, who are represented by the National Association of Letter Carriers; Rural Letter Carrier, who are represented by the National Rural Letter Carriers' Association; and Highway Contract Route carriers, who are independent contractors. While union membership is voluntary, city carriers are organized near 100% nationally. City carriers are paid hourly with the potential for overtime. City Carriers are also subject to "pivoting" on a daily basis. Pivoting (when a Carrier's assigned route will take less than 8 hours to complete, management may "pivot" said Carrier to work on another route to fill that Carrier up to 8 hours.) is a tool postal management uses to redistribute and eliminate overtime costs, based on consultation with the Carrier about his/her estimated workload for the day and mail volume projections from the DOIS (Delivery Operations Information System) computer program. City Carrier routes are adjusted and/ or eliminated based on information (length, time, and overall workload) also controlled by this program, consultations with the Carrier assigned to the route, and a current PS Form 3999 (street observation by a Postal supervisor to determine accurate times spent on actual delivery of mail)... Rural carriers are under a form of salary called "evaluated hours", usually with overtime built in to their pay. The evaluated hours are created by having all mail counted for a period of two or four weeks, and a formula used to create the set dollar amount they will be paid for each day worked until the next time the route is counted... City letter carriers typically work urban routes that are high density and low mileage. These routes are classified as either "mounted" routes (for those that require a vehicle) or "walking" routes (for those that are done on foot). When working a mounted route, city letter carriers usually drive distinctive white vans with the logo of the United States Postal Service on the side and deliver to curbside and building affixed mailboxes. Carriers who walk generally also drive postal vehicles to their routes, park at a specified location, and carry one "loop" of mail, up one side of the street and back down the other side, until they are back to their vehicle. This method of delivery is referred to as "park and loop"... Rural letter carriers typically work routes that have a lower density and higher mileage than those of city letter carriers. They all work mounted routes, leaving their vehicles only to deliver to group mailboxes or to deliver an article that must be taken to a customer's door... Rural letter carriers often use their own vehicles and are not required to wear a uniform... Highway Contract Route carriers work routes that were established with a density of less than one customer per mile driven (some later grow denser, and can then be converted to rural delivery). They are only mounted routes, and all HCR carriers use their own vehicle. These routes are typically found in outlying areas, or around very small communities...

Want same day package delivery service? Keep a look out for a drone to drop it at your front door. Drone delivery is about to get real! Just a few years ago drone delivery seemed like a thing of the distant future. Not anymore. A company in Ohio, called Workhorse Group is testing package deliveries using drones...but there’s a small twist. The drone comes out of the top of an electric delivery truck. After each delivery the drone returns to the truck for its next package. Martin Rucidlo, President of the Workhorse Group said, “The least expensive way to deliver a package would be utilizing a drone, it’s pennies in terms of cost per mile.” A driver programs the drone with an address. Using GPS, it flies to a safe altitude, drops the package within eighteen inches of the ground, usually near the front door. Then takes itself back to the delivery truck. “The driver of the truck has moved on to the next location and now the drone re-docks with the truck at a distant location that is where they are making the next delivery,” Rucidlo said. The drone delivers packages in rural areas, usually traveling distances of about one to two miles. “We envision working for maybe for 10% of the packages, you’re typically delivering 100 packages a day, ten of them will be utilizing the UAS truck delivery system,” he said. The UAS – or unmanned aerial system – can carry packages up to ten pounds, and it’s durable enough to fly in rain or snow. “There’s limitations, you can’t fly them in severe wind,” said Rucidlo. Afraid someone or something – a dog or curious child -- will get in the way of your delivery? The driver is still in charge. “Someone can see that your son is out and will stop the drone from descending at that point via a camera,” he said. The drones are still being tested, and the FAA needs to finalize rules for flying commercial drones – but the future of drone delivery could be just outside your door. “It also allows you to get to what I will call next hour, or one-hour delivery. We have standard delivery, then we have two-day, and then we have next day and then we would have same day, and then we believe one hour. And the only way you’re going to get there, we believe, is with a drone,” said Rucidlo.

AgriSea NZ Ltd is a multi award winning family owned and operated, sustainable NZ company, brewing nutrient applications from NZ seaweed, for soil plant and animal heath. AgriSea is committed to the NZ farming community and healthy functioning soil. They have recently embarked on a 3 year research programme to track the transition of high input chemical farms to biological farming methods, the end results of which are intended to produce safe pathways for farmers to transition and further proof of the efficacy of their products. AgriSea’s products grew from the early research of directors Jill Bradley and Keith Atwood. Travel and research confirmed to them that seaweed held enormous potential for farm health and productivity. French vineyards on the coast, known as the ‘Golden Belt’, have used seaweed fertilizers for centuries and are producing great wines. Research has been at the heart of the company since its inception in 1996, starting with research into the efficacy of AgriSea products, originally for kiwifruit and subsequently moving into viticulture. Fast forward 20 years and AgriSea have an impressive array of products for the horticulture, agriculture, viticulture, bee keeping and equestrian industries. Their viticulture products are being used by 60% of vineyards in NZ. In the 90’s Europe wanted sustainable, low residue wines and NZ viticulturalists were quick to respond to market demands and get onboard with more biological farming methods. “We work closely with our farmers and we listen to them,” says Jill. A couple of newer products in their range were in direct response to farmer requests, for instance a seaweed salt lick for stock and a solid dry product. Sheep and beef farmers in areas with difficult access and some simply as a preference were wanting a solid product for application. Working with Blue Pacific Minerals, AgriSea developed a liquid seaweed concentrate that is infused into a zealite base. The seaweed concentrate takes 3 months to brew and is stirred by hand with paddles, every day. Research has been an important component for AgriSea – providing proof of the product efficacy to the end user. “Our responsibility is to do the research to show the efficacy of our product, if we don’t add value to a farming or growing business, we won’t sell to them”, says Jill. Up until now this research has been outsourced to organisations like the Cawthron Institute and Scion, but times are changing. Jill speaks of ‘biological farming’ as a continuum – high fertiliser input farming systems at one end and the biodynamic/organic systems at the other, with the biological farming system in the middle. She wants to see the significant movement from the high chemical input farming systems towards the middle ground. The benefits are healthier stock, healthier pasture and healthier soils that are better able to recover from drought and a better bottom line for farmers. About a year ago the family sat down and thought about these goals and made the decision to ‘put their money where their mouth was’. While the majority of research has been conducted by external parties to date, AgriSea has committed to their own 3 year research project – the Soils First Production System. The research aims to develop a system and track the transition of 6 high fertiliser input farms to biological farming methods over 3 years. The goal is to provide safe and effective pathways for farmers to transition to biological farming methods and also provide further proof of the efficacy of the AgriSea products.

On July 27, 2016, Michigan-based Vayu, Inc., in collaboration with the Stony Brook University Global Health Institute completed the first ever series of long-range, fully autonomous drone delivery flights with blood and stool samples, setting records in the process. The samples were flown from villages in rural Madagascar to Stony Brook University's Centre ValBio, a central testing facility located adjacent to Ranamafana National Park, over hilly terrain without any road infrastructure. The unique ability of Vayu’s delivery drone to take off and land anywhere solves that problem and helps vulnerable rural communities to get the medical care they deserve. “The flights to and from villages in the Ifanadiana district of Madagascar ushers in a new era in bringing healthcare to people living in really remote settings,” said Dr. Peter Small, the Founding Director of Stony Brook’s Global Health Institute. "This day would not have been possible without the support of the government and people of Madagascar. In this context, drones will find innumerable uses such as accelerating the diagnosis of tuberculosis and ensuring the delivery of vaccines.” This effort was made possible by generous support from the United States Agency for International Development. www.vayu.us

(10 Nov 2016) FOR CLEAN VERSION SEE STORY NUMBER: 4065304 LEAD IN: Chinese retailers are investing heavily in drone delivery systems as a way to access millions of customers in the country's rural areas. A surge in e-commerce has seen demand for online shopping deliveries increase. But poor road infrastructure in China's more remote provinces makes sending products by air a more attractive option. STORY-LINE: A delivery drone takes off, gripping its precious cargo. The Beijing-based e-commerce giant JD.com recently unveiled a fleet of 30 drones. Developed via its in-house drone team called JDX, the drone delivery program has so far licensed more than 30 flight routes in four different bases: Beijing, Jiangsu province near Shanghai, Shaanxi province in northern China, and Sichuan province. Since China's Air Force controls the air space, JD.com is leasing the drone flight routes from the government on an annual basis and has to notify officials for each flight. When a rural customer orders goods online, it is flagged when it is suitable for drone delivery. Once it reaches the delivery station, a team fixes it to a drone that will follow a fixed route that will avoid populated areas, highways and signal towers. Cui Zhang, a senior engineer at JDX, says it cuts the delivery time. "We can reduce the delivery time by half compared with traditional delivery methods like cars or motorbikes. It is also very cost effective. The cost of urban delivery is about 1/5th of the cost of rural delivery in big cities. We hope to use drones to reduce costs dramatically," he says. The trial drones that JD.com have been using have a maximum load weight of 15kg. Most can travel 10km in one trip. During a recent flight test with the media, the model used, called M-TC2, was able to travel at a maximum speed of 100km/h. The drone hovers above a designated area in the destination village, drops the parcel down and leaves immediately after. Fragile items are not suitable for drone delivery. A designated "village promoter" then collects it and delivers it to the villager. Gao Hui, a part-time "village promoter" for JD.com: "Delivering parcels to the village is very time consuming because it is far and the roads are in poor conditions," says Gao Hui on his way to deliver the parcel of tissues. "Drones are different, they can directly fly to the village and I can pick up the parcel and delivery directly to the customer. You save a lot of time," he adds. Andy Mok, an analyst at Red Pagoda Resources, calls the drone deliveries a potential game changer because the market, of 600 million people, is enormous. "By using drones, companies like JD.com have the potential to leapfrog the need for road investments by governments to immediately access this large and growing market," he says. Village promoters also help villagers, who often do not own a computer or are not familiar enough with the world of e-commerce, to place orders. Sheng Ma, a 30-year-old villager, ordered several boxes of tissues in the morning from JD.com. A few hours later, they were in his hands, after a drone had flown a few kilometres through the Jiangsu province countryside to deliver the goods. He was playing outside with his one-year-old son when Gao Hui delivered his order. He is impressed with the speed of delivery. "Before, for example, if you ordered today, it would only arrive tomorrow. Now, if you order at 9 am for example, it will arrive in the afternoon" he says. The project is currently in a trial phase and expected to be expanded next year.

Chinese e-commerce giant JD.com has deployed drones to deliver goods ordered online. The drones drop parcels at designated areas along programmed routes, then delivery men pick up the goods and transport them to their exact addresses. The whole process is monitored in real-time by a control center. The drone delivery program aims to improve the efficiency and accuracy of deliveries in urban and rural areas.
