Press release from the issuing company
WASHINGTON - The Postal Service expects the busiest mailing day of the year for customers will be Monday, Dec. 14.
More than 612 million pieces are expected to be accepted and processed today. The Postal Service also is expecting a nearly 7 percent increase in packages to be processed on the busiest day.
“We prepare for this day year-round,” said Megan J. Brennan, Postmaster General and CEO. “The Postal Service is ready to serve our customers, and they can count on us to deliver their cards and gifts to family and friends for the holidays.”
Millions of customers will visit retail lobbies on Dec. 14; however, there are also many online options that allow customers to skip the trip. The busiest mailing day is expected to be the Postal Service’s busiest day online with more than 7 million customers predicted to visit usps.com. Customers can use Click-N-Ship to print and pay for shipping labels. They can also schedule a package pickup online, and order additional shipping supplies. Customers can sign up at my.usps.com to manage incoming packages, as well.
The Postal Service also encourages customers to remember the following shipping tips:
