Once again I am reminded why using the United States Postal Service when FedEx and UPS are more dependable and reliable …
Here is a screenshot of the tracking on a package that was delivered to my local post office on September 3rd at 2:51 p.m. It is now September 15th at 4:24 p.m. and I see the package has been either lost or in limbo since it was processed by the post office. A clear example of either poor performance or poor tracking management.
Since the package contained specialized walking shoes that were to be re-soled by the manufacturer so there is no real hurry. But the idea that the postal unions keep telling us that the postal service is competitive with its current union structure is ludicrous.
Update: Checking with the shoe manufacturer, the package was received on “9/10/2014 3:42:00 PM” so what we see is a lack of tracking follow-through and crappy data processing!
