USPS Maintains Time Delivery Average of 2.7 Days

WASHINGTON, DC — The United States Postal Service reported new service delivery performance metrics through the second week of the fiscal second quarter showing Marketing Mail and Periodicals remaining consistent with first-quarter results. Scores for First-Class Mail were temporarily impacted during the week of Jan. 8-14 due to industry-wide delays in both ground and air transportation following recent East Coast winter storms.

These delays continue to impact middle mile transit across the network. The Postal Service continues to implement mitigation plans to move mail and packages effectively with performance showing signs of improvement.

Overall, the USPS reported preliminary performance metrics for the 2021 holiday season showing the organization saw volume increase when compared to the same time last year. Between Thanksgiving and New Year’s Eve, it took on average 2.7 days to deliver a mailpiece or package across the Postal Service network.

During the same timeframe, the network accepted more than 13.2 billion letters, cards, flats and packages for delivery, exceeding 12.7 billion accepted for delivery during the same timeframe in 2020.
