Texas is a prime example of how state-level financial incentives can help create jobs, the states largest mail carrier and a popular provider of interstate and international mail service.
A report released Wednesday by Axios, a media and technology research firm, said that when Texas and Louisiana teamed up to launch the U-Tiles, the federal government was awarded $5 billion to help cover the cost of expanding the Uptown Express, which opened in Austin last year.
The program also funded more than $500 million to expand and modernize Texas’ regional and regional mail carrier, TX Mail, which began operations in 2011.

S.-based USPS said in a statement that the partnership has been a success and that the Postal Service’s operations in Texas have grown over the past two years.
“The Postal Service has grown from a single location in the Texas Panhandle to a full regional mail service in Austin and Houston, providing service to more than 9 million customers,” USPS said.
“It’s been a long road but we’re thrilled to continue the UPTOWN Express service in Texas and will be continuing to provide service to customers as we work to improve our customer experience in Austin.”
The USPS said the UPSE will expand to provide regional, express, and rural services in Texas in 2019.
The Upton Express is one of the first commercial mail-delivery services to open in Texas, which became a state in the 1980s and is home to the U, T and Z counties.
The service has become the preferred delivery option for residents in Austin’s suburbs, including North Austin, and its expansion is expected to add as many as 50 jobs.
“Our relationship with the UTAX is solid and we’ve always appreciated the partnership,” U. S. Rep. John Culberson, R-Houston, who represents a heavily Democratic district, said in the statement.
“This partnership will help support the delivery of Texas’ growing economy, including our growing post office population, while allowing the UTS to deliver and distribute mail to a more diverse population in our communities.”
A report commissioned by the USPS found that the UTM, which offers delivery services across Texas and the Caribbean, has seen strong growth in the past three years.
The report found that in 2017, there were more than 14,000 post offices open and more than 11,000 parcels sent, and that by 2020, the number of post offices will surpass 22,000.
UTS says that by 2019, the company expects to expand to more post offices and more customers, and it expects to be profitable.
In 2017, UTS opened more than 2,400 post offices in the state, which is expected in 2020 to exceed 2,000 posts and 5,000 customers.
The company has said that the growth is fueled by a growth in post office employment, including through hiring of additional UTS employees and the opening of more mailrooms and delivery centers.
The Postal Service and the UMTs partners also announced a memorandum of understanding on Monday that will expand U.N. mail delivery services.
The memorandum of understand calls for U. N. Mail to expand the delivery services to New York City, the UTTs offices and the rest of the country.
