USPS Exceeded Holiday-Shopping Delivery Projection

The holidays are over, but the numbers that show how much work the Postal Service accomplished are still emerging.

USPS surpassed its projections of delivering 750 million packages during peak season, according to new data. And on Dec. 19, one of the season’s busiest days, the Postal Service delivered more than 34 million packages.

Other peak season numbers:

  • Employees across the nation spent 1.1 million hours on city streets delivering mail and parcels Dec. 19.
  • Throughout peak season, employees drove more than 200 million miles – the equivalent of driving around the world 8,000 times.
  • The San Francisco, CA, Napoleon Street delivery unit processed the most peak season packages.

“Our employees did a phenomenal job during the holidays,” said Chief Operating Officer David Williams. “We appreciate all of their contributions and look forward to building on our success during peak season 2017.”
