While we’ve all faced our share of challenges over the last few years, there’s a group of unsung heroes who have largely flown under the radar. Through rain, sleet, snow, floods, and more, our postal and shipping carriers and delivery services professionals have ensured our goods, services, and communications were delivered safely when we needed them most. (None of us will forget that toilet paper shortage.)

Key challenges for mail carriers across the globe include:

  • At-home delivery of everything (medicine, household items, groceries, etc.)
  • Limited hours at local post locations
  • New COVID protocols
  • Overall labor shortages 
  • Significant increase in parcels and mail volumes
  • Local and governmental restrictions 

With holiday e-commerce shipment volume expected to increase by up to 32% - there’s no doubt mail and shipping carriers will continue to deliver. (Download the complimentary infographic: Hectic Holidays: A global look at holiday shopping 2021 to learn more)
