    USPS is terrible IMO! If I want to mail a letter to my next door neighbor it has to go 100 miles north first!



    However, never has anything if recieved or shipped out been damged or lost...so that's pretty good. As far as delays and such, the package pretty much always arrives a day AFTER the expected delivery date.




    Mail a letter to your neighbor? Does it get delivered the next day? Got any scans from the last time you had a late parcel delivery? What zip code are you in? When I hear “always” from a disgruntled USPS customer I tend to think they are just piling on with let’s hate the USPS posts. I’m retired now but might be able to shed some light on delays if you like.

    Here are a couple of mine from recently.






    9405809699937320969896 Was a big **** up somewhere between IN and CA. Maybe weather or transportation issues but USPS really dropped the ball on this one for sure.



    9405809699939766815164 Is almost surely a weather delay



    9505516141179042447311 Looks like it met expected service standards



    A lot of people may still think Priority Mail is 2 days but can actually be more depending on Origin and Destination. Of these 3, the first one looks like a royal **** up. The 2nd one possibly but I'm thinking weather delay. One other thing I should mention. Most over the road transportation is by contract drivers. Some of these drivers cancel during bad weather so the mail is stuck along the way. This was my biggest frustration when I was Plant Manager. My employees came to work for the most part and then we had failures due to cancelled contract runs.




    Yeah I understand priority is 2-3 day, and actually prefer USPS and historically have had great luck, last 2-3 months a complete different story though. Every package has had issues of the 6 or so shipping and receiving.



    Even the one ending in 311 above took 4 days, originally had an expected delivery that was supposed to be 2 days.




    s*** happens. Also it's been winter the past 2-3 months and the weather sucks.

    If you need to file a complaint do not call nor write a letter. They don't care. They only way to get things to improve is to file a complaint online. They have to follow up on the online complaint whereas a phone call will just result in them writing down your address and contact info. Sure they will ask the carrier what happened with the package but they don't have to pursue it further.

    I had a shipment last week that took about 30 hours to go 30 miles away. Then it went 2500 miles in 17 hours. It still got delivered in 3 days, just seems weird to me that certain parts of the process take as long as they do.

    The last three packages I ordered are/were delayed/late. All were shipped via USPS Priority. This is getting old.

    Shipping out of DFW area...several boxes getting torn up in Coppell, TX main facility. May sit there for 3 days. Shipping CA got there in 2 days. Wichita Falls, TX 4 days. FL about 3-5 days depending on east/west coast of state. Anything north 1-2 weeks...even when it is not snowing.



    I have had packages leap frog others going to the same state or even a few miles apart. USPS is sucking wind and getting worse. Been switching to FedEx and UPS ground...takes longer but still quicker than USPS at times...ground beats priority...yeech.

    I got a package that was supposed to be delivered yesterday but is late. It's all the fault of USPS and not the massive blizzard that came through Wednesday.

    FYI...USPS has a service alert report you can download.



    https://about.usps.com/newsroom/service-alerts/

    Under Business Mailers the last link is to a XLS file that has the listing of all issues currently affecting delivery. I use it to update customers when I ship to snowbound areas.

    Usps service and tracking goes in spurts of really good and really bad but the packages show up 99% of the time. Just hang in there
