1 "The Post Office is reponsible for postal services."
2 "You can use other services provided by the namtional postal service."

There're "postal services", "other services" and "postal services", and why dose the single form used in No 2?
  • The United States Postal Service replaced the Post Office as the agency which delivers the mail. The Postal Service (capitalized, singular) provides postal services (not capitalized, plural.) There is only one agency called the Postal Service. That one agency, however, can provide many services to coustomers.
