DeJoy: USPS was overwhelmed last year, but ready this time for the holidays
Postmaster General Louis DeJoy says the U.S. Postal Service is ready to deliver your packages during the peak holiday season.
“Regarding the peak season, I want to begin with three words: We are ready,” he said Wednesday.
DeJoy’s assertion comes after he previously apologized for slow mail delivery during last year’s peak season.
It also follows the unveiling of a 10-year plan for the Postal Service to incorporate a series of changes.
The changes were implemented last month and include longer first-class mail delivery times and cuts to post office hours.
The changes have no affect on about 60% of first-class mail and nearly all periodicals.
“We are ready. So send us your packages and your mail, and we will deliver timely,” DeJoy said.
The only thing that can help the Postal Service is Amazon making the determination that continuing to use the USPS because we are cheap means their customers leave because the postal service ran out of man hours and didn’t delivery the goods.
