Hub and Spoke Program (HASP) - For surface mail, primarily for 2-day committed mail. The HASP includes a central point ("hub") where mail for a group of offices ("spokes") can be unloaded from a series of incoming trips, massed according to their intended destination, and then sent on to that destination on another trip. Savings are realized because each trip does not have to drive to each individual office or "spoke" to drop off just a portion of its total load capacity.
