Default US. postal Service

Is the US Postal Service as bad asI have found it to be.
Earlier this year I sent to one jet subscriber a set of BV droops. They never arrived.
On September 15th I posted and tracked an AW piston seal.
Last heard of in Texas on October 9th. Moving through their system ! !
Is it always this bad ?

Nope. I get 75% of my parts via USPS. I wouldn't use post for international shipping.

USPS had been great for a lot of years and I used them for some International shipments a number of times with no issues and they were a bunch less money than FedEx or UPS.

But lately, things have been slipping. USPS is losing money and the Congress cut them off so they are cutting staff and services.

I have three customer orders shown as "not scanned" this year and a forth never arrived. USPS is the best by far, its just going to get worse due to demand of online sales and another business cost you have to account for.
