How is mail delivered?
People who use postal services pay in advance. Senders may pay by putting a stamp on the mail. They may also take their mail to the post office and pay a clerk or a postage machine. Heavier mail costs more to send. People mail their letters and packages by placing them in a mailbox or taking them directly to the post office.
At the post office, postal workers sort the mail by size. Letters go through a machine that cancels the stamps. This means that the machine prints lines over the stamps so that they cannot be used again. The machine also prints the date, the time, and the place of stamping. This is called the postmark. Postal workers then sort the mail according to its destination (the place where it is going).
They may sort it by hand or with the help of machines. Postal workers tie sorted mail in bundles and put it into sturdy sacks. These sacks are marked with the mail’s destination. Postal workers send the mail to its destination by truck, train, ship, or airplane.
Why is our mail so late?
What’s causing the USPS delays? – There are two main reasons for the USPS delays. First, the postal service is strained by the increased shipping volume resulting from the COVID-19 pandemic. Second, recent changes implemented by USPS Postmaster General Louis DeJoy have resulted in slowdowns.
Because of COVID-19 closures many Americans shifted to purchasing products online while staying at home and the country has experienced a shift in how it conducts business. Increased online sales have led to a higher demand for the USPS’s delivery services, resulting in some deliveries taking longer than expected.
Along with the logistical troubles that come from an unanticipated surge in packages, the coronavirus itself had an impact on the USPS’s workforce. According to a Government Executive, approximately 55,600 USPS employees had tested positive for COVID-19 among its workforce back in July 2021.
- The number of COVID-19-related deaths among postal workers has not been widely reported by the government, but it is estimated that at least 197 workers have died from the disease, according to ProPublica,
- The other major reason for these slowdowns is a series of changes, implemented by DeJoy’s 10-year plan.
Changes being made included adding a minimum of a day to First Class delivery times, a shifting focus from air delivery to ground delivery, increasing domestic rates, limiting overtime and reducing post office hours. These changes, plus more, are meant to major financial issues facing the postal service.
