Sent a package on Saturday via USPS priority with delivery confirmation.
I was in Atlantic City, and it is going to Camden, both in New Jersey, and only 50'ish miles apart.
Look at the route USPS is taking...

I had a package that was going to Canada but took a scenic tour to Argentina.

I recently had a package coming from MN going to NJ.It got to NJ,but decided to wander off to VA for a day,before coming back.
"CLICK" to give food & care to needy animals.It's FREE
they lost a package of mine for 3 weeks... i called SEVERAL times, and all they could tell me is "i don't know"
One lady actually had the nerve to say "don't worry about it, just wait 30 days and file a claim"...
Turns out it was sitting on a shelf in the post office for 17 days... they just didn't bother to look for it
For the most part I think they do very well.
Considering the volume they handle they are bound to have a few off deliveries.
I have a package comming to me and it took 4 days to get from sacramento to sanfrancisco. Delivery conformation said it should be delivered on the 17th and it just left California.
RAT PACK #941
I have had a some weird tracking, probably due to USPS recycling tracking numbers*, but the packages always arrived when they were supposed to.
*It is possible that's what happened here. Give it another day and see what happens.
History repeats itself because we didn't understand it the first time.
"The universal aptitude for ineptitude makes any human accomplishment an incredible miracle."
They may not be perfect but far above their competition. I only use usps due to their efficiency over last 7 years or so and nothing lost and only one damaged that could have been my fault .
If you search bf I am sure you will find overwhelming consensus that favor usps by large margin.
Thankfully I paid the extra for the delivery confirmation/tracking so I could tell him what was up.
A big +1 to this thread. Sent one to NY a few weeks ago, luckily it arrived a day or two after its trip to HI and Florida
I had a Banned Busse AK47 go missing some years ago. It turns out that USPS ships to South Africa via Holland and that damn volcano in Iceland erupted shutting down European airspace and stranded my package. It took another 6 weeks for it to arrive as they had a massive backlog to clear, but arrive it did.
I am amazed by how good the USPS International service is. Sometimes packages take a while to arrive and clear customs and I have only ever had to enquire about 2 packages which appeared shortly after. To date I have very little to complain about.

Holy Moly... I have gotten fragile items completely destroyed by USPS, but I don't think I've ever had packages take the super scenic routes yours have
Hey T, wait until you start getting UPS envelopes with a ups tracking number that says USPS on it delivered in your mail box a couple of days later than normal or ship a global guaranteed Fedex from a post office with a usps tracking number... the services are starting to merge together and not for the better.
Freedom is expensive, but you get what you pay for and a life worth living is worth fighting for to the end.
BUSSE & KIN currently for sale
There could be other reasons they're losing money... I went to ship a Benchmade 710-2 to western Russia and UPS wanted $270 tracked and insured, USPS wanted $35 tracked until it landed in Europe.
This is all due to the USPS closing sorting facilities. One of our ways to combat the economy.
The only other reson for that might be a misread zipcode due to poor hand writing. (not saying that is the case here)
The P.O.'s 2 biggest customers are FedEx and UPS! They are seling the hell out of those "If it fits - it ships" Priority boxes. They can not touch those prices.
It's easy to undercut the competition when making a profit isn't in the USPS business model.
Who do you think moves the majority of small packages for USPS ? It is contractors,FedEx and UPS. Only the final delivery is made by the USPS.
