Seasonal snapshot

Sonya Reed, a letter carrier on light duty, uses the Postal Automated Redirection System to move holiday mail at the Detroit Processing and Distribution Center.

The Postal Service has created a one-page fact sheet with key information about the upcoming holiday season.

The sheet includes this year’s estimated busiest mailing and shipping day (Dec. 19) and busiest package delivery day (Dec. 22), as well as the number of seasonal employees (more than 35,000), among other facts.

Employees can download the sheet from the USPS Holiday Newsroom site, which also features news releases, Link stories, videos, stamp information, mail-by dates and details about the Operation Santa and Letters from Santa programs.
