USPS Domestic Service Disruptions and Post Office Closures – Updated 4/15/2024

SHARE

The United States Postal Service (USPS) has provided the following information regarding disruptions and suspensions of domestic services and facilities. These disruptions are based on notifications issued by the USPS to the public through industry alerts and social media posts.

Additionally, issues reported by the media that may significantly impact USPS operations in specific areas may also be included here. These will be clearly identified, particularly if they are related to weather events or natural disasters.

USPS Domestic Services covers mail and package shipments within the contiguous United States, as well as those destined for Alaska, Hawaii, and U.S. territories such as Puerto Rico, the Virgin Islands, and Guam.

Furthermore, military and diplomatic mail (APO/FPO/DPO) are technically classified as “domestic” services in terms of U.S. Postal Service operations and pricing. If USPS becomes aware of any delivery problems or suspensions related to APO/FPO/DPO mail, this information will also be included here.

It’s important to note that once APO/FPO/DPO mail is handed over to the military for international transport, USPS no longer controls its delivery outside the United States.

Some APO/FPO/DPO mail and certain territories may still require customs forms, even if they are priced as domestic services.

This information was last updated on April 15, 2024.

USPS Domestic Facility Closures and Network Disruptions

While weather is currently not playing a significant role in delaying mail deliveries, regional issues are causing concerns across the nation. Earlier this year, customers in Houston, TX, complained of delayed mail, which may have been mostly solved by now.

But now, residents and businesses in metro Atlanta, GA, have become the latest victims of significant mail delays from a new facility in south Fulton County. We have seen some localized reports across the country of other similar situations but frequently impacting a smaller area.

While delivery delays affect all postal customers, these disruptions are especially troubling for ecommerce shippers that heavily rely on the U.S. Postal Service to handle their packages. Reports suggest that tracking is not showing up or is irregular, generating increases in customer service calls and frustrations.

The situation has become so bad that eBay issued a general statement now to help protect seller on-time delivery metrics on its platform.

eBay said, “We are aware that many USPS domestic shipments are taking longer to be delivered than typical service standards at this time.”

Furthermore, the marketplace is “monitoring the [USPS] network and will adjust estimated delivery dates as needed to ensure your buyers see the most accurate delivery times possible.”

While we have not seen other online marketplaces issuing a similar advisory or seller protection, online sellers and shippers should be aware that regional network delays continue to affect the USPS logistics network, which may delay the transportation and delivery of mail and packages, including mail items with tracking.

We strongly advise online sellers to notify customers of potential USPS delays for shipments, regardless of their U.S. destination.

Winter Weather

Cold air flowing into the backside of the Plains system will support moderate to heavy snow development over parts of the Central Rockies tonight. Snowfall of 6 to 12 inches, with isolated higher amounts, is possible.

Snow will also likely develop on the backside of a pair of cold fronts pushing through the Northwest on Tuesday/Tuesday night, while thunderstorms move farther into the Upper Mississippi Valley and Midwest.

Snow accumulations of around 6-12 inches are likely over the ranges of northwestern Wyoming into southern Montana, while 8-18 inches with isolated higher amounts possible over the Bighorn Mountains.

USPS asks customers in areas impacted by new winter weather to ensure access to mailboxes, businesses, and residents is maintained and free of ice and snow to enable postal carriers to deliver mail and packages.
