    There was a time that I found USPS tracking to be unreliable, they would often miss scans. These days, though, they seem a lot more reliable and very rarely miss a scan.

    Is this other people's experience with USPS tracking these days?

    Updates can be inconsistent, but actual delivery status seems on 'track'. :righton:

    I have not noticed much change. I usually have at least five or six items in transit at any time and check on them daily using "Informed Delivery" on the "MYUSPS" site. Really hit and miss. I had an item delivered last week that did not get a first scan until it arrived at my local post office. I have had quite a few tracked items delivered recently that are not reflected as such with USPS.

    I think it's improved a lot in regards to tracked international deliveries. It seems to be much faster receiving goodies from my neighbor's to the South compared to 5 years ago.

    I just bought some CDs here and there has been an update every day so far.

    My experience is that USPS tracking isn't as accurate or detailed as UPS or FedEx tracking but it's a lot better than it used to be.

    Since around Nov 1, 2017 Media Mail has been terrible. FCM and PM are great as usual.

    It may be because I have moved from the Milwaukee WI area to Portland OR. I always got great service back there even with Media Mail. Overnight delivery statewide, here it might take a week. I'm talking Milwaukee to Madison, or Fox Valley, and Green Bay. No experience in the NW part of the state. Duluth is an 8 hour drive.

    Kudos to the folks at Lakeland District! I know who they are cause I did direct mail for around 30 years.
