USPS shipping times seems inconsistent at best and varies wildly from place to place without apparent rhyme or reason. I'm experiencing both ends of the spectrum: one First Class pkg arrived in 3 days from GA; a Priority Flat Rate I sent on Dec 26 to IL shows it is out for delivery today. But, a 1st Class envelope/pkg I sent on Dec 18 to PA has yet to be delivered (last tracking info shows that it passed through Honolulu on the 19th but nothing after that). I'm still waiting for a Priority pkg to arrive from NC that was shipped on Dec 26 but so far has only made it as far as Greensboro.

Today I received this email from The Knife Connection:

Dear Subscribers,
It's been a challenging year for anyone who ships a large number of packages every day. TKC has shipped exclusively with USPS for over over a decade with very few issues, but due to severe delays lately, USPS is no longer offering the quality of service we desire for our customers.

Active immediately we will be using UPS as our primary carrier.

USPS options will still be available at checkout, but we do not recommend them. Expect major delays if you choose USPS and be willing to wait for weeks in some cases.

While a slight shipping cost bump is an inevitable part of this decision, we value our customers and take pride in the quality of service we offer. Please keep in mind that with the higher cost of shipping will also return to you much better quality of delivery service.

As always we value your feedback. If you would like to share your thoughts regarding this change please reply and let us know! Positive or negative, we will take your feedback into consideration.

Best Regards,

The Knife Connection

I just had one come in from Vancouver - from 8 Dec to 23 Dec it was stuck in Vancouver, BC, when it was received by the USPS receiving facility in Vancouver, Washington.

On the 24th, it made it to San Francisco, spent Christmas Day/Weekend in San Fran, leaving on the 27th, arriving in Austin on the 28th and then delivered to my mailbox 60 miles away the same day.

So, the USPS is having difficulties with a pandemic over the busiest mass mailing Christmas period in history. USPS is still the best option in my experiences/opinion.

So after 19 days of sitting in Madisonville, KY, according to USPS tracking it arrived and departed Evansville, IN today.

Meantime I bought a book on line on Christmas Day. Saturday I got an email saying it was shipped from the seller. UPS delivered it Monday morning. COVID nor the holidays seem to be adversely affecting them.

My service has always been great up until the time Postmaster Dejackass took over.
Being a retired Mail Carrier I believe his goal is to put the Postal Service out of business.

So my latest whine is a package that left Monticello, KY on Dec 18th, landed in the last stop before Rockford on Dec. 22nd. It's till there.

BUT I have a success story to go along with that. Had a package leave Captain Cook, HI on Dec. 26th and delivered to me in Rockford on Dec. 30th. That's some kind of service right there.

Just a cautionary note guys if using UPS and your package is coming from another country. My most recent package is coming from the US to Canada, and I received a notice that duty and taxes were due totalling CDN$34.74. if I paid online, or, CDN$39.99 if I paid over the phone. Due to covid there is no C.O.D or pick-up which also would have been CDN$39.99. Upon paying the bill it seems that the actual duty and taxes amounted to under CDN$5., and the remainder is for UPS brokerage fees. So, in essence they charged me US$29.64 shipping for Standard Ground Service, AND, CDN$30. brokerage fees, for a grand total of CDN$66., and a delivery window of 12-14 days! All my packages prior to this one have come by USPS, and only once when the package was rather heavy was I charged duty and taxes. I also investigated USPS Express shipping, and even with the additional charges for Express it comes to CDN$58. with a 2-5 day delivery window! Needless to say which service I'll be using. And yes, I'll confirm what you're all think'n, it's freaking EXPENSIVE to ship stuff to Canada! 8)

IMO, USPS has always been a GREAT deal: relatively cheap for such fast and reliable service...except now (due to whatever reason) it's not. Perhaps we were spoiled and accustomed to a very high level of service for a relatively low cost. So...What changed? Who screwed with something that wasn't broken? ::disgust:: And, why? ::shrug::

As some of you know, I work part-time at a newly opened indoor gun range and full-service shop and I run their e-commerce business on GunBroker. This holiday season I had seven (7) USPS medium flat-rate Priority boxes go missing that were all mailed on 12/2/2020 from the same Post Office. Twenty days after they were mailed (on 12/22/2020) I was able to open a USPS insurance claim and notify the ATF that 7 firearms were blowing in the wind. In the 9 days that have passed since opening insurance and ATF claims, all firearms have been successfully delivered to the proper FFL dealers.

What's odd is that from 12/2 to 12/26 there was ZERO tracking history for any of the 7 packages that were going to all corners of the USA. The moral of the story for me at least is that USPS cannot be trusted with anything other than unwanted junk mail and I will never use USPS again for a weapon shipment of any kind including knives. I feel sad that a 228 year old Federal organization can't get it's shirt together but it's beyond repair - blow it up and use the commercialized businesses that know how to get it done. ::handshake::

Sent Priority 2 Day on December 14th, just arrived today. So much for paying for Priority 2 Day!

I spent 36 years as a Mail Carrier and you are right it is a sad state the Postal Service in in right now. My
service has always been great up until or current administration took office. Changes were made and in my opinion
they were made to put the Postal Service out of business and privatize it.

I have found that courier companies (UPS and FDX) always charge the duties and taxes when bringing in a parcel from the US to Canada. I believe they act as customs brokers and likely charge the duties and taxes to cover their butts with Canada Customs?? I think the same thing is true of the ebay Global Shipping System in that they always charge the duties and taxes. I will not buy from an ebay seller who use the Global system. Like yourself, I am rarely charged duty or taxes for parcels coming in by USPS.

I must defend the USPS here, they sometimes don't come by here until after 8 pm, and about 2 years ago they cut back and the carriers started delivering 2 routes. Guess which route I live on. :-)

I had a shipment about 2 weeks late from the famous bay and it finally came on Dec 28th. Then they (not the USPS) changed the due date so it would show delivered on time.

Have a blessed day,

Leon

Below is the tracking info for a knife I sold in November. It was packed and shipped on the same day the order was placed. It arrived today. I had already made a full refund to the buyer who was honest enough to contact me after it arrived today and refund my refund. The chronological order of this debacle is from bottom to top. The package went missing on Nov. 22 and did not reappear on USPS radar until yesterday, Jan. 6. It was delivered today FIFTY days after it was mailed. ::dang::
