Postal Workers Keep Busy to Deliver Packages

Posted:

Although Christmas is over, packages are still making their way to loved ones.

Shipment delays are common during the holidays and postal workers are keeping busy to make sure you get your deliveries as soon as possible.

Some have even been working extra days.

"I think we've been on a pretty good schedule. As a matter of fact, we've been delivering on Sundays. Last Sunday we delivered all day as well. So we've been keeping up and our parcels are getting less," says Skip Huber, USPS Mail Carrier.

Huber says they're about caught up with the influx of holiday shipments..

and those we talked to say they all got their packages on time.

"I had about two or probably three that came in the mail and I got them, received them."

"All our gifts that were mailed to us and all the stuff we mailed out all got there on time. No delays, no damage, no anything. Everything was great."

"I think if they're actually given an expectation by the delivery people of a specific date then yeah there will be a frustration. If they get them there late and they haven't been responsible then they probably have to take their chances."

Huber says on Christmas Eve, a lot of people came out and thanked him and even offered him cookies and candy for delivering.
