I receive a lot of small packages for my work through USPS Priority Mail. Their tracking sucks, but delivery was always pretty good at 2-3 days, even from the west coast to reach the east coast.

The past few weeks have been horrible though. 7-8 days from Cali or Florida. I had one package go from CA to Mass and float around there 2 days before heading back west to NY. Anyone here know of a solid reason for this? Did they change something in their distribution?

A few weeks ago, I had a LOCAL priority mail package take a full week. Usually, anything within 4 hours of the metro was de facto overnight.

It's been even faster and more reliable for me the past few weeks. Even first class has only been taking 2 days to get from FL to NM. The thing I really like about USPS is that packages are moved 7 days a week. You can ship on Friday/Saturday and it'll be delivered on Monday to most places. UPS and Fedex completely shut down on weekends and packages just sit.

They still move on weekends. It will stop once they reach the next hub, though.

FedEx Home Delivery delivers on Saturdays for free as well to most zip codes.

This has been my experience lately as well. Packages showing up crazy faster than I expect them too.

Since the OP is from NY, I'd just expect an extra 10 layers of BS the mail has to go thru to get to its recipient.

In my experience, on the days where home delivery takes off FedEx Ground still delivers. Then again, I work for a shipping center and have everything send to where I work.

I didn't even catch that you were from NY-my folks are just outside Rochester.

The funny thing is,the mail is more sporadic going there than coming here-although in the past year it has really slowed down coming from there.I send cards and gifts at least a week in advance now-took 9 days for my dads birthday card to get there from here,but the card they sent me only took 3 days.

Doesn't seem to be any consistency to it.

The only issue I had was a First Class that was going from New York to ME(Nebraska). It took a left at Des Moines and made its way to Florida. Got scanned there and is now in USPS lost package hell. It never showed up.

the post office is now being run by the IRS and falls under obamacare and they found some bad meat in the can from some funny postal workers so the NSA is checking on all the packages being shipped now so they have screwed up another great government program that looses 25 million dollars a day that they are in business

I just refunded the buyers money. The supervisor who was looking into this said they have never seen this happen before.

just got some mags off the EE, took 4 weeks to go from NC to FL. Showed up today, were shipped out the 26th of September.

Good arfcommer though, he refunded my money after the PO lost the box for 3 weeks.

(yes I repaid for the mags)

The "new" tracking is worse than the "old" delivery confirmation. And that was pretty bad. But the service itself, I've not had a problem with.

the USPS is changing a lot of stuff around, from distrubution/sorting facilities to delivery times.
not to mention a lot of post offices are now only manned until noon. you can still get your mail from a PO box after 12a.m.

IMO a lot of it is being done on purpose to try and prove that they are still needed.

just like what happened with barrys .gov shutdown..

You're paying extra shipping because you're a sucker. You have little or no recourse if they simply do whatever they want with your mail.

I have no firsthand info on why he'd pick on you for your politics, but if you really are making excuses for them then you're not going to find much sympathy.

You shop for ammo lately? There isn't a shortage because people are pants-pissing excited about plinking at cans. Think about that. Nobody cares if anyone is "annoyed" at this point.

As an employee, I can sadly say that it's due to consolidation of facilities/closures aka poor planning. Hell I've ordered several items from Midway and they come via UPS but will transition to USPS in the destination city. Motorola has the nationwide contract for finger held scanners. It a two finger strap held on by velcro. The velcro strap holds out longer than the scanner itself. I kid you not. As of this past summer there was a 6 month wait for these illustrious scanners. I worked at Fedex from 1993-98 and understand was a real scanner is suppose to be.
There are times I've experienced 2 day Priority service from Wisconsin to Texas but 1 week delivery times from Missouri to Texas. Go figure. All I can say is to expect more of this. Further consolidations are in the works around the first half of the year.

Use FedEx if you want it to get there. USPS is union wages for third world service.

Hell I've ordered several items from Midway and they come via UPS but will transition to USPS in the destination city. Motorola has the nationwide contract for finger held scanners. It a two finger strap held on by velcro. The velcro strap holds out longer than the scanner itself. I kid you not. As of this past summer there was a 6 month wait for these illustrious scanners. I worked at Fedex from 1993-98 and understand was a real scanner is suppose to be.
There are times I've experienced 2 day Priority service from Wisconsin to Texas but 1 week delivery times from Missouri to Texas. Go figure. All I can say is to expect more of this. Further consolidations are in the works around the first half of the year.

I can see a package getting put on the wrong truck and making a detour to the wrong state ( seen this many times ) but how can a package with a clearly printed label ( wide clear tape over the shipping address to avoid it being damaged ) be delivered to someone in a different state? The supervisor that called me said she was completely baffled and had never heard this happening.

How would the carrier on his delivery route not notice the address when he is sorting the mail to deliver?

3 tits really?

having worked for the USPS since 2005 I have found an uncommonly high percentage of dumb-asses work there.
