YORK COUNTY, Pa – This holiday season the US Postal Service expects to deliver a total of approximately 15.5 billion pieces of mail. Between Thanksgiving and New Year’s Eve, they expect to also deliver over 600 million packages.
For the second year in a row, they are delivering packages seven days a week.
“I’ve never seen so many parcels. I’ve been doing this for 27 years and I’ve never seen so many parcels, in all the years, I have been doing this; it’s crazy,” said carrier Brion Durgin.
An increase in online shopping has led to the increase in deliveries.
