USPS Gears Up for Holidays with Sunday Package Delivery

INDIANAPOLIS, Ind. (WOWO): Bringing holiday cheer to their customers, the Postal Service will be delivering packages seven days a week throughout the Greater Indiana District starting Sunday, Dec. 6 through Christmas Day due to the anticipated 10.5 percent package volume growth over last holiday season.

“The Postal Service ships more packages to more places than anyone else,” said Greater Indiana District Manager Larry Diegel. “During the holidays, we’re raising the bar with enhanced tracking and Sunday delivery, providing excellent service and reliability that only Santa can compete with. We’re prepared to do whatever it takes to deliver for our customers.”

Due to continued e-commerce growth and improvements to its Priority Mail product line, the Postal Service is expecting its package business this holiday season to balloon to nearly 600 million packages. 

For expected delivery of holiday mail and packages by Christmas, the Postal Service recommends keeping the following domestic mailing and shipping deadlines in mind:

Dec. 15  – Standard Post

Dec. 19 –  First Class (cards and letters)

Dec. 21 –  Priority Mail
