“Self-Service Kiosks provide easy access to postal products and services just as ATM kiosks provide easy access to banking services, but without the fees,” said Neill.
Beginning the week of Dec. 6, customer traffic is expected to increase, with the week of Dec. 13-18 predicted to be the busiest mailing, shipping and delivery week. Nearly 200 million packages are expected to be delivered during the busiest week.
Sunday package delivery for the peak season begins Nov. 28 in select major markets — with more than 9.7 million packages projected to be delivered each Sunday.
It’s estimated nearly 500,000 consumers will use the Click-N-Ship feature and other online services on Dec. 14 to order free Priority Mail boxes, print shipping labels, purchase postage and even request free next-day Package Pickup.
