US Postal Service expects significant increases in volume for Christmas
The Postal Service describes 2020 as an extraordinary year of unprecedented challenges, with the COVID pandemic. The Postal Service is expecting significant volume increases. They have 644-thousand employees dedicated to ensuring gifts and greetings are delivered in time for the holidays. And the Postal Service will expand Sunday delivery on November 29 to locations with high package volumes. The agency’s busiest time of the season peaks two weeks before Christmas. Also when sending packages make sure that you don’t overpack boxes, by insuring that the items fit in the box you selected without bulging. If you are sending an item that has batteries make sure they are packaged separately, and don’t send fireworks or ammunition through the mail.
