We are still seeing significant delays with mail being processed at the NDC in Detroit These delays are growing, currently adding 5-7 days to in home times. This is affecting mail both going into the Detroit area and mail being sent from the Detroit area.
The USPS has been consistent in their messaging to the public that the service the USPS performs is deemed at the most essential level and service will continue. “The United States Postal Service shall be operated as a basic and fundamental service provided to the people by the Government of the United States, authorized by the Constitution, created by an Act of Congress, and supported by the people.” 39 U.S.C. §101(a). There has been lots of news related to both staffing issues and budgetary issues with the USPS and while the issues at the USPS are real The USPS wants everyone to understand the service they provide is mandated by federal law and there is no risk to the fundamental service.
All trucking issues we were seeing in previous updates have been resolved and trucking times have returned to normal.
All Postie print facilities have implemented intense safety procedures for employees and are complying with state and federal social distancing mandates and safety recommendations.
