Holiday First-Class Mail, Performance Up
"On the two busiest days [Dec. 14 and 21] , we [postmarked] more than 530 million stamped holiday cards and letters," he said.
In addition, Henderson noted that according to the USPS' auditor, PriceWaterhouseCoopers, local First-Class mail service remained at record levels during the first postal quarter -- Sept. 12 to Dec. 4. During this period, the agency delivered 93 percent of its First-Class mail on time. This ties the previous year's results for the same time period.
