USPS ready to deliver holiday purchases

The Postal Service wants everyone to know it will be ready to deliver their Cyber Monday purchases this year.

In a news release this week, USPS reminded customers that products and services like Click-N-Ship, Package Pickup and free Priority Mail boxes, available on usps.com, allow them to take care of their mailing and shipping needs at home.

Additionally, the organization is encouraging customers to watch several “how to” shipping tips videos YouTube and to refer to the USPS Holiday Newsroom website for domestic, international and military mailing and shipping deadlines.

Online purchases on Cyber Monday, the first Monday after Thanksgiving, are expected to hit $10 billion in 2020, a 39 percent increase from last year, according to market researcher Adobe Analytics.

Overall, online shopping sales in November and December are expected to reach $189 billion, up 33 percent compared with one year ago, according to Adobe Analytics.

While the Postal Service expects significant volume increases, precise predictions are difficult this year due to the coronavirus pandemic.

However, the organization expects holiday customer traffic to increase beginning Dec. 7, with the season’s busiest period for mailing, shipping and deliveries occurring Dec. 14-21.

maybe whoever wrote this arcticle should bring their back side out of their office and see what is really going on in the offices cause we are not ready to deliver all the stuff people are going to order monday. we didn’t get todays stuff out maybe because management didn’t hire enough help or maybe because they let rca’s go home before checking with other carriers to see who needs help.
