The United States Postal Service reported new delivery performance metrics for the sixth week of the fourth quarter for fiscal year 2023. The average time for the Postal Service to deliver a mailpiece or package across the nation was 2.5 days.
FY23 fourth quarter service performance scores covering July 1 through August 11, included:
*First-Class Mail: 91.3 percent of First-Class Mail delivered on time against the USPS service standard, a decrease of 1.3 percentage points from the fiscal third quarter.
*Marketing Mail: 95.2 percent of Marketing Mail delivered on time against the USPS service standard, consistent with performance from the fiscal third quarter.
*Periodicals: 85.6 percent of Periodicals delivered on time against the USPS service standard, a decrease of 3.3 percentage points from the fiscal third quarter.
The Postal Service continues to make service delivery improvements. Currently, 98 percent of the nation’s population receives their mail and packages in less than three days. This percentage recently improved, and USPS is working hard to correct service-related issues in the other limited areas.
