USPS Is Ready to Deliver 800 Million Christmas Packages

The USPS will process and deliver 13 billion pieces of mail and 800 million packages to American homes between Thanksgiving and Christmas, the USPS Postmaster General Megan Brennan told postal employees.

She noted that the holiday window is 6 days shorter than last year but said, “We are well prepared for the upcoming holiday season.” The USPS will expand its network capacity by expanding air and surface transportation. It will also add package sortation capabilities, flex its delivery window, and will hire seasonal workers.

More lies, as usual, from postal mgmt. Lying is all they know how to do; to employees, to the public, and to Congress.
They’re NEVER prepared. Every year is a fiasco. But then, there is zero accountability in postal mgmt. for anything including financial losses.

You’re dead on psouth! I was a USPS clerk, last holiday season put me over the edge for all the reasons you just stated and more ! Best day of my life was walking out of that place for the last time!

Just mark the. UPS parcels NMR……. Then UPS gets them back and has to deliver them……..works for me !

Prepared where? We’re never prepared at the plant. Overworked understaffed & underpaid by undercompetent mgmt, who gets bonuses off the work on our backs and they don’t give us any appreciation for the hard work. They could at least buy lunch for us from their bonus check. Ppl have died on the work room floor and all they do is clock u out roll u out.

Want a real story Postal Times, with the USPS in deep financial difficulties why is it’s mgmt. getting large annual bonuses year after year ?
