Boxing Goals

It is our goal to box your mail the same day it is received and as soon as possible. However, since we will receive an average of 4,600 pieces of incoming mail per day, it does take some time to sort and box the mail.

U.S. Mail

This includes all U.S. Mail except Express Mail. For information on Express Mail, please see the Air Package Services section below.
