Today marks the busiest mailing day of the year

TAMPA, Fla. (970 WFLA) – Monday, December 16th marks the busiest mailing day of the year. 

Enola Rice of the U.S. Postal Service in Tampa said this year is busier than usual.

“We expect a 12 percent increase in packages this year. So, nationwide we expect to deliver 420 million packages. And there are things that customers can do to help us get those packages delivered quickly and correctly,” Rice said.

Rice said you need to get that Christmas package in the mail by early this week for regular first class mail or you can wait until the 23rd if you want to pay for priority mail express.
