Go On, Expect Your Delivery!
You know that feeling you get when you’re expecting an important package, but you can’t wait around for it to arrive?
Soon you won’t have to worry or wait. The USPS® is expanding its test of Expected Delivery (ExD), a new feature that gives a two-hour estimated delivery time frame for some packages.
The USPS piloted the program in 2016 as a part of the organization’s efforts to grow its package business and help customers better plan for deliveries. Now, the Postal Service has introduced an expanded list of pilot locations.
If you’re in an eligible ZIP Code, there are two ways to set your desired notification preferences and access ExD information:
- Sign up for texts or emails and track your package using usps.com
- Create an Informed Delivery account
Note, these types of shipments are currently excluded from ExD: Priority Mail Express, Hold For Pickup, Sunday deliveries, international shipments and PO Box deliveries.
