I ordered a package on 7/19/2023 it got mailed out 7/21/2023 through UPS to Tacoma And delivered to the P.O. in Tacoma on the 28th at 7:05 pm that was my last update had I not spent $20 & went the cheapest rate I would had, had my package but it’s in limbo in Washington, I thought I was getting it faster paying $20 but in stead I paid for 2 handlers and neither one knows where my package is and it’s been 3 weeks and no one knows nothing & I didn’t receive a new tracker from UPS to the P.O. quite frustrating. Where’s my package at?


Is our mail safe? Are you doing things to assure that with this virus. So many people handle our mail. I want to be safe but I want to get my mail too. Could you put somethng on your web site to tell us. Thank you.


I have checked the track package,status packages has delivered.but receiver do not have record yet receiving the package...what should I do?


We have not received any mail in our Rt. 2, Box 39, Ktn. Ak. Is there a reason why? I am missing check's and a package. Thank you


Does anyone know who delivers mail to DORA/CHOLMONDELEY areas?


I would like information about what is happening with mail in/out and around Ketchikan, Alaska. Is all mail delivery being routed through Juneau, including mail that is being sent from from end of Ketchikan to the other end of Ketchikan? Very little if any information has been provided to the community of Ketchikan about exactly how their mail is being handled. The Post Office is long overdue in giving this community answers and full explanations as to what is going on.
