To our Priority Mail Express® fans, we’ve got some important news for you! In order to help manage the surge in parcel volume, the USPS® has changed the guaranteed delivery times for Priority Mail Express®.
Priority Mail Express® guaranteed delivery time will be switching from the current delivery windows (10:30 AM, 12:00 PM, or 3:00 PM) to one, single guaranteed delivery time of 6:00 PM on delivery day, regardless of the package’s origin and destination. The service’s standard of 1-2 days shipment will not be changing.
The changes have been approved by the Postal Regulatory Commission (PRC) and will take effect on May 23, 2021 at 12:01 AM.
You can read the full news announcement from the USPS® on their site.
