Post office readies for final delivery days before Christmas

19 Décembre 2017

Everyone's clamoring to get their gifts delivered in time for Christmas.

It's a busy time of year for the U.S. Postal Service. "You have till Friday the 22nd but just be ready you're going to pay a little more", said Mazurkiewicz. "It's for New Year's", said David Hamilton, customer. "Projections are that approximately 850 million packages will be delivered between Thanksgiving and New Year's Eve, which is an increase of 10 percent over last year's volume". The longer you wait, the more expensive it gets. You can access the kiosk 24/7 and you can use it to buy stamps and mail packages. It's the Postal Service's busiest mailing, shipping and delivery week.

"We've got some employees that are working 7 days a week, and many of them are working 12 hour days".

Post Master General and CEO Megan Brennan says Tuesday is the first of a series of deadlines if mailers want their items to arrive before Christmas.

The wreaths used at Arlington were once again made in ME and delivered via a caravan of tractor trailer trucks to the cemetery. Over one million wreaths were laid on graves across the U.S. on Saturday as part of the "Wreaths across America" program.

"Informed Delivery" is a feature that not only allows customers to digitally preview their letter-sized mail, but also track and reschedule package deliveries to ensure someone is able to be home to receive them. USPS expects to handle nearly 3 billion pieces of First Class Mail.

UPS. Monday is the last day for UPS 3 Day Select, Wednesday is the last day for UPS 2nd Day Air, Thursday is the last day for UPS Next Day Air and UPS 2nd Day Air Saturday, and Friday is the last day for UPS Next Day Air Saturday.
