My package has been sitting in Baton Rouge since Wednesday? Why can't you people get my package the last 100 mi. without it taking 2 days? You guys are pathetic! Strapping it to the back of a frickin turtle would have been faster!

Very very slow. Tracking is terrible and I have to track through a third party site because newgistics site will not connect and times out. It has been that way for days.I could walk from my home to New jersey quicker and would at least know where my package is.

About USPS

The United States Postal Service, more commonly known as USPS, is an executive branch of the United States Federal Government. It is an independent agency that provides postal services throughout the United States and its territories.

How does USPS tracking work?

USPS tracking uses an end-to-end item tracking system. This means that USPS helps track almost all domestic mail commodities (letters, parcels, etc.) sent to domestic locations only. After items are sent out for delivery, USPS allows customers to track their parcels or letters on their website using the tracking number assigned to the parcel by USPS.  

Once anyone enters the tracking number that is allotted to a mailpiece on the USPS tracking page, the page will give that individual the current status of the mailpiece. This tracking status includes the following information:  

  • If the parcel or letter is available
  • Delivery information like the date and time of delivery
  • The last location of the parcel e.g the mailbox, left at reception, or with neighbour, etc.) if the item has already been delivered

The USPS Tracking system does not guarantee delivery. But there is no extra cost for its tracking services. When you first pay for the posting of the package, tracking service charges are already included. But if you’re posting something via USPS Marketing Mail, then you may pay additional fees to track the order.

What is the USPS informed delivery?

The USPS postal service offers a free notification service for customers to view their mailpiece and manage the time of arrival of their package called Informed Delivery. This service is convenient for frequent travellers.  

As Informed Delivery is a fully-digital service, the customer can see if a package or letter is arriving at their mailbox from the convenience of their Internet-connected device.  

Informed Delivery works in a very systematic way. First USPS digitally images the mailpiece that goes through their automated equipment. These images are stored while the customer is updated with the latest USPS parcel status updates. This service maintains transparency and safety in any household.  

This service also allows the receiver to take action or maintain their privacy before anything crucial and sensitive reaches their mailbox. Users can maintain their privacy as they receive.

What do my tracking statuses mean?

The tracking statuses inform customers about their package delivery status, including incoming packages, delivered items, or unsuccessful delivery attempts. You can find more information on this page about common package statuses and how to track your parcels using the USPS Tracking number.  

We also recommend all customers to use Informed Delivery® notifications by USPS® to manage the parcel tracking process easily. By registering or signing up for a USPS account, you can preview letter-size mailpieces, receive text notifications or emails to track your package(s), leave delivery instructions, and schedule a redelivery.  

What to do when my USPS package is delayed?

Unusual circumstances, such as traffic jams, bad weather, staffing fluctuations, or rescheduling the carrier route, may cause delivery delays. In this case, USPS® offers multiple options to help you track your package delivery status.  

We recommend you to check the mail delivery standards of your mail classes and the waiting time before contacting customer service. Also, you can go to the USPS page for tracking up to 35 parcels per time by entering the tracking number of your item. Read this extensive guide by USPS on how to deal with delayed mail and packages.  

What is the USPS Click-N-Ship service?

Tracking USPS posts and mailpieces is one thing, but services like USPS Click-N-Ship is a unique service provided by USPS as a prepaid system for delivering mail. In this service, USPS allows the customer to make prepaid shipping labels on plain white paper, which they can later use to officially ship their mailpieces.  

These labels contain a delivery confirmation number that later allows the customer to track the date and time of delivery of the item. Besides postage costs, the customer does not have to pay an extra fee if he/she is using Priority Mail, Priority Mail Express, Global Priority Mail, and Global Express Mail.  

How to contact USPS?

Customers can go to the USPS website and get their official email to convey any concerns about their mailpiece. They can also go to their website and check out their frequently asked questions for solutions to common issues. Lastly, customers can also visit the USPS office to address issues in-person.  

For urgent matters, USPS’s official phone services number can also be found on the website. Phone lines are active Monday to Friday between 8:00 AM to 8:30 PM (20:30 hours) and 8:00 AM to 6:00 PM (18:00 hours) on Saturdays.  

Does USPS charge their packages by weight or size?

USPS prices their parcels based on the weight and distance of their parcels.  

For urgent matters, USPS’s official phone services number can also be found on the website. Phone lines are active Monday to Friday between 8:00 AM to 8:30 PM (20:30 hours) and 8:00 AM to 6:00 PM (18:00 hours) on Saturdays.  

  • Priority Mail Express: Price determined by weight and distance travelled.
  • First-Class Mail Shipping: Price determined by the shape of the shipment and weight.
  • Priority Mail: Price determined by size, weight and distance travelled.

What to do when a parcel gets stuck in customs?

Getting parcels stuck in customs is very frustrating. But during times like these you can either wait it out, or follow the given steps:  

  1. Contact the person who shipped you the goods: Check if the person who sent you the parcel has all their paperwork and documents in order to speed up customs processing.
  2. Contact USPS: USPS can expedite custom processing, but might charge you a fee for this premium service.
  3. Find out if you have any outstanding taxes to pay: Some countries have particular taxes to pay before shipping packages.
  4. Wait: If you’ve done everything right, the only thing you can do is wait for the package to be cleared.

What is USPS interception?

USPS Interception helps customers redirect, send back or divert the location of delivery of the letter or package from the original address. If there’s a USPS tracking barcode on it, Domestic Priority Mail, Priority Mail, First-Class Packaging Services, Parcel Select and Packaging Services all can be intercepted.  

The receiver can send the package back to the mailer, redirect it to a new address or Hold For a Pickup. These services are available through email or the Product Tracking System. Customers will be charged the $14.10 Package Intercept Fee per piece, and if the actual package is larger than expected, additional postage fees will apply accordingly.  

What does my USPS package tracking number look like?

A USPS parcel tracking number is a unique set of numbers assigned to your order. This USPS tracking number can be used to track your USPS package and receive real-time updates from USPS on your parcels. Normally, the USPS package tracking number contains 22 characters generated randomly.

You simply have to copy that USPS tracking number and paste it on our USPS package tracking tool and review your parcel’s entire delivery journey and its latest status.

Where can I find my USPS package tracking number?

The USPS package tracking number can be found in various places:  

  • USPS Post Office shipping receipt
  • Sales receipt if you purchased shipment insurance at the Post Office with USPS
  • Email confirmation after your package is shipped from
  • Shipping confirmation email you received from an online retailer
  • Bottom peel-off section of your USPS tracking label

How do I leave package delivery instructions for USPS?

If your USPS package qualifies for USPS delivery, you can let USPS know where to leave a package at your address, change your package’s destination country, or send it to your local Post Office. Click on Change Delivery Instructions on the tracking results page and leave your request for USPS.
In case there is no “Delivery Instructions” link, your USPS package may have some of below features, which are not suitable for that service:  

  • Already left the Post Office for delivery
  • A Hold Mail request
  • A military (APO/FPO) or DPO address
  • A Delivery Signature request
  • A Collect on Delivery (COD) request
  • An active USPS Package Intercept order
  • Insurance for $500 or more

Where is my USPS package?

To track your USPS package, simply copy and paste your unique USPS package tracking number into Parcel Monitor’s USPS parcel tracking tool.
If your USPS package’s status shows “delivered” with a recorded time and location of your package but you haven’t received it yet, don’t worry. First, check carefully in your mailbox, porch or garage, ask your family, friends or neighbours to see if there is anyone who has received the USPS parcel on your behalf. If you still haven’t found your USPS package after 24 hours from the ‘delivered’ status, send a service request through your email to your local USPS Post Office for a follow-up. You should receive a confirmation number and contact after 2-3 business days.  

When will my USPS package arrive?

USPS is unable to provide an estimation on when exactly your delivery will arrive at the destination. As the volume of packages to be delivered differs daily, an estimation of arrival date and time is not guaranteed. However, all USPS packages are to be delivered by 5:00pm local time Monday through Saturday. Priority Mail Express and Amazon packages are the only exception - these are delivered on Sunday.  

  • First-Class Mail takes up to 1-5 business days
  • First-Class Package Service takes up to 1-3 business days
  • Priority Mail takes up to 1-3 business days
  • Priority Mail Express takes up to 1-2 calendar days
  • USPS Retail Ground takes up to 2-8 business days
  • Media Mail, Bound Printed Matter, and Library Mail takes up to 2-8 business days
  • Parcel Select & Parcel Select Lightweight takes up to 2-9 business days
  • Periodicals takes up to 3-9 business days
  • USPS Marketing Mail takes up to 3-10 business days

If your packages are still not delivered within the USPS delivery estimation, you just have to insert your USPS package tracking number for your order to retrieve real-time delivery updates on your parcels.
