Come rain or shine, the professionals at the United States Postal Service deliver. From the earliest days of its history, the USPS has delivered letters and packages to the remotest parts of the country and even other parts of the world. Back then, it might take weeks to get a letter from one city to the next, but still, the letter arrived. Nowadays, the USPS has many more options for delivery than the Pony Express and schooner cargo ships. The USPS not only has its own fleet of trucks and a hefty airmail schedule, it also works in tandem with other commercial delivery services. Add to that a host of modern advantages fueled by smart-phone and mobile app technology and online services. And while these technologies certainly make dealing with the post office easier, sometimes you still need a place to go to for mail drop off and pick up. Naturally, USPS still has thousands of offices around the country as well as postal outlets in places like your local grocery store and street drop boxes for your convenience. While the form of the postal service has changed over the centuries, its commitment to deliver your packages hasn't.
