Pittsburgh (KDKA)-The United States Postal Service has changed and needs to be known.
Starting Sunday, delivery times for some First Class packages will be delayed by up to a few days.
They declined to talk about it on the camera, but this is only part of the post office’s 10-year plan to be financially sustainable. In other words, they are trying to save money.
If you need something critically by email, order early.
There are expectations when USPS trucks arrive on your street.
“I ordered it online last week and got it today,” said Tomkosu of Ross Township.
Over the last few years, we have become accustomed to waiting.
“Today’s email is slow enough for what we’re calling. It’s a snail email,” said Paula Moore of Glenshaw.
Coming on Sunday, the snail will be even slower on some first-class packages as the post office “improves the use of ground transportation while reducing air network usage.”
Translation, they are sending more on the ground and less in the air.
“If it keeps costs down, it’s okay,” Kos said.
Not everyone understands.
“I don’t like it, but I’m a victim, what are you going to do?” Added Avalon’s Cindy Cillo.
According to the post office, this change will increase delivery time by 1-2 days for 32% of first class packages and reduce delivery time by 1 day for 4%, affecting 64% of first class packages. There is no such thing.
The important thing to remember is to take into account the extra delivery time if the need for something like a medicine is time sensitive.
According to Japan Post, ground delivery is more reliable and predictable than air services, and FedEx is the main airline, but it is also used by commercial airlines.
