Has anyone noticed that the USPS is taking longer and longer for everything these days? I used to recieve shipments from Europe in 10 days. Since the first of the year, mine and shipments for several other people I know of are taking a month. I don't know if this is due to a change in Customs procedures or some homeland security initiative, or what, but it never used to take anywhere near this long. Also, the tracking website is very poor recently, and it is not unusual for your package to be delivered before the site updates one time, past the event in which a package enters the system. It is completely unreliable and inconsistent. It seems as technology improves the service gets worse. I know there have been several rounds of consolidations system-wide to save money and compensate for lower volumes, but this should not interfere with the computer system updating as a package is scanned and processed at various points along its journey. Anyone else having similar experiences or knowledge of what's going on?
