Here’s another one in our ongoing series to document the postal service quality decline over the last few years, we audit all deliveries, USPS is losing more packages and not scanning/updating properly. Here’s one from a customer of ours, Adafruit delivered the package to USPS Weds, 1/21/2015 (we have the logs of which ones are physically given to USPS) and then USPS sat on it for 10+ days, it was never updated as “scanned in” and then it popped up 10 days later in DC. This is an almost daily issue we see, USPS is not scanning or updating packages. This was a Priority 2-day customer, but it’s over 10 days now. Although it’s outside our control, we gave them a shipping refund.
