USPS Slows Shipping Time for holidays: We have Solutions

Posted by Lecretia Akines on

On September 30th, USPS Newsroom gave information on the changes businesses and consumers should expect during the upcoming holiday season. 

 

"New Service Standards for First-Class Mail and Periodicals Beginning Oct. 1

On October 1, the Postal Service will implement new service standards for First-Class Mail and Periodicals. These new service standards will increase delivery reliability, consistency, and efficiency for our customers and across our network.

Most First-Class Mail (61 percent) and Periodicals (93 percent) will be unaffected by the new service standard changes. Standards for single-piece First-Class Mail traveling within a local area will continue to be two days.

The Postal Service will increase time‐in‐transit standards by 1 or 2 days for certain mail that are traveling longer distances. By doing so, the Postal Service can entrust its ground network to deliver more First-Class Mail, which will lead to greater consistency, reliability, and efficiency that benefits its customers."

We trust that USPS will continue to do an excellent job, however; we have added the following solutions to our systems to help improve the on time delivery of your products.
