Thank you for visiting the National Star Route Mail Contractors Association website. The Association will be redeveloping this website over the next several months so that it can better serve its current members, prospective members, and partners. You can look forward to a new, redesigned, and dynamic website in early 2022. See you at the National Convention (August) and Southern Regional Meeting (November) until then. Exciting changes are ahead!


The Association is headquartered in Washington, DC - 324 East Capitol Street, 20003-3897, telephone (202) 543-1661 and ultimately represents some 17,000 small businessmen and women who contract with the United States Postal Service for the over-the-highway transportation of the mail.

The Association is non-profit and its major goal is to provide legislative and regulatory protection to its members as well as a primary interest in their general welfare. It is the only official organization recognized by the U.S. Postal Service, the U.S. Congress, the Department of Labor, the Department of Transportation and other federal and state agencies to represent and speak in behalf of the nation's USPS Highway Contractors.

Organizationally, the Association is comprised of a nine-member Board of Directors providing representation in all parts of the country and access in the fifty states. The National Office is headed up by Executive Director John V. "Skip" Maraney along with his staff, Lynn Watson and Edie Young-Scales and provides invaluable assistance to members in the form of information, question answering, and help with problems members may be experiencing with their respective Contracting Officer, Administrative Postmasters, and/or other USPS Officials.

The Association also retains the services of a law firm in Washington, DC for general and legal assistance and which members may call for personal or private retention. The attorney to contact is David P. Hendel, whose address is:
