SACRAMENTO, Calif. — The countdown to Christmas is on and our mailmen and women are ready. There’s less than two weeks until the big day, but they spend all year preparing for the holiday shipping rush.
ABC10 followed along with a mailman to find out what it takes to get your packages and cards delivered on time.
“I guess we’re just going to go out and do a little delivering – some holiday cheer – and get these customers ready for their Christmas,” said Jacob Studer, a mail carrier.
Studer isn’t letting anything slow him down – not even dogs. You could see just how much mail there is as he made his way along his route in an Arden-Arcade neighborhood Monday.
“It’s just been building every day. More and more people are getting stuff shipped home and so the volume of the mail is just getting more and more,” said Studer.
But before your mail makes it to the trucks, it must be sorted first.
