Merchants Should Monitor USPS Shipments to Area

Historically, tracking of mail into areas impacted by natural disasters or other emergencies can be erratic and show significant pauses of no activity.

Online merchants and sellers should monitor USPS shipments destined to the 3-digit zip codes of 413-418 for any unusual delays.

Please see our USPS Service Status on Domestic Services and Shipments page here for more domestic disruptions in the U.S. Postal Service network.

We will update this post when more information becomes available from USPS.
