February 12, 2015 - The Wisconsin Department of Transportation hired Christensen Associates to conduct a study to estimate the number of automobiles and light trucks on the roads without current registrations, and determine the reasons for non-compliance.
August 12, 2014 - The U.S. Postal Service (USPS) Office of Inspector General (OIG) released its white paper on the advancing technology of 3D printing. The USPS OIG contracted with Christensen Associates to assist on this study. Our analysis of commercial package volume data showed that 3D printing could lead to an increase in annual revenue of as much as $485 million due to new package shipments.
The ubiquitous first- and last-mile postal network would be a strong asset for connecting emerging 3D printing businesses with their customers. Additionally, excess space in postal facilities offers tantalizing partnership opportunities for businesses committed to fast, streamlined delivery of 3D-printed goods.
