This is absolute BS 3 packages heading for California are according to the tracking are " ARRIVING LATE " this has happened a few other times-One person didn't receive 3 weeks later-Another member on this site been waiting since the 20th of October--I've notified the post office with the response of well it shows it left the Sorting Facility ..but Idea what happened to it--The odd thing is it only happens when I mail a pkg with tracking to California --When I send in a PWE no problems.....so if your expecting a trade from me and you live in California expect a delay

I noticed that packages and pwe leaving the state of CA......are slow and while the pwe coming into to CA are getting here faster than pwe going to other states. PWE from New York got here in 6 days.... Pwe going from ca to other states take about 10 to 12 days??? Best regards, David PS mail within the state of CA is the same as before the v word.........but that can change as Christmas is around the corner.

dude, please understand that the fires in California has major effects on all infrastructure. People have lost lives and livelihoods. the effects are quite extensive. I am sure the delays can be tolerant give what the world has gone through over there.

Most of the fires are out in CA......currently only major fire is the Creek fire in the Sierras and thats almost containment....mostly mountain area......worst hit was Shaver Lake area where about 100 cabins were burned to the ground. True mail in that area is slow....but most of the mail in other parts of CA is back to normal for now.......But Christmas is around the corner and that always slows the mail during the Holiday Season. People have been losted and business losted as with most fires. I donated like many California residents to the American Red Cross to help thoses that were effected by the fires. Our firefigters are the best and they need your help. Best regards, David

exactly as are the postal workers. They are all coming off the mail in ballot election and became targets of fraud accusations, atop of the natural disasters effects. I have heard through "sources" that because of the issues including the fires and election, mail has backed up a little and that it will get processed and will get on track. Some USPS that I heard of are working shift work and scaled back sorting personnel due to COVAD.

I think all of these things considered the USPS especially in Cali should be applauded for just keeping the train moving and people need to temper their complains after considering all the issues that they face.

We have an amazing country and the front line workers at all these issues need the support and I cannot get more THANKFUL... for allowing me to collect and trade silly cardboard cut outs. :)....

ok, sorry, then if its not a systemic issue then its localized and I am sorry for your troubles. I hope it gets better for your mailers. I just tried to put out some additional insight... disregard then

UPDATE---Well I called the 800 number as I was getting zero help from the local post office and they instructed me to file a missing mail claim form within a week the package was found and delivered

I hear ya, and everyone package is important, but this is not the time to get attention to one specific package when there is an unprecedented online shopping going on plus the holiday season of package mailers. I am glad you got it and it maintains my faith in the USPS may not be the greatest customer service since every ones package is a #1 priority and its impossible to make everyone feel special.

The USPS is also understaffed these days with COVID, people regularly call out leaving some to just tread water.

Dave,mail has been slow for me too. Took 8 days to get a Priority package from NYC to me in central NY. Had another package from CA take close to 2 weeks to get to me. '

I think the mail has been slow for most of us lately.

The key word " Package why are packages a parcel a class B mailing arriving late ? were as PWEs a class C mailing are pretty
much arriving on time and some cases earlier ---I now check tracking more often than I ever did.

I mailed a package to California from Indiana about a month ago. Took over 2 weeks to get there. Watching the tracking. It went from Indiana to NY. From NY to Memphis, TN and than finally to California.
