Henrico County, Virginia-Gary Zuch has been waiting for the package to be delivered for nearly a month, and he is worried that the package may lose to the United States Postal Service (USPS), delaying delivery.
Zukh said: “You know, we didn’t ship it on a slow boat from China.” “We just sent it 70 miles away.”
The Newport Newsman said that he and his wife sent gifts to an underserved family in Richmond, hoping to lift their emotions before Christmas.
Zuh said: “The delivery was originally scheduled for Friday, December 5. It includes a pretty good gift card for them to buy gifts, groceries and other expenses, which is important to us because of Christmas.”
Zuher said tracking records show that the package was in the Henrico area before returning to the US Postal Service Distribution Center in Richmond in Sandston.
Zuher said: “According to the system, it has not moved in the past twelve days, so it must be stuck on the back of certain plants.”
Zuch is one of dozens of people who delayed packages and mail related to CBS 6 problem solvers. A U.S. Postal Service spokesperson said in a CBS 6 statement that delivery delays and problems were due to the excessive volume of historical mail this holiday season and the shortage of personnel due to the covid-19 pandemic.
The spokesperson said: “Similar to the broader shipping industry, the U.S. Postal Service continues to face recent pressure on the performance of various types of services in managing the historical record of the number of holidays this season.” The U.S. Postal Service’s statement said: “Due to COVID- 19 The shortage of temporary employees caused by the surge, as well as the continuous capacity challenges caused by historical mail volumes such as air and truck transport, exacerbated this negative impact.
Zuhe said: “I believe they will do their best with limited resources. I just think they must solve problems more systematically. You can’t put things in a corner and think everything will disappear.”
The U.S. Postal Service stated that they have also encountered capacity problems in air and ground transportation, which has exacerbated flight delays.
Although Zuch understood, he was worried about whether his package could be delivered to the correct destination.
Zuhe said: “I’m just afraid that it will be taken away, or that it will eventually fall into the wrong hands. There is no feeling of sadness, only disappointment is more important than anything else.”
The spokesperson said that USPS will continue to work to solve the problem and continue to focus on shipping mail and packages during the holiday season.
The spokesperson continued: “In the historical transaction volume, the post office will continue to expand its network, including ensuring that appropriate equipment can be used during this holiday period to sort, process and deliver historical mail and parcels.” “Our entire operation The team, from collection to processing to delivery, has been working throughout the past weekend and working around the clock to deal with historical quantities. We accept all the quantities provided to us, which adds to our challenges.”
