U. S. Postal Service – Informed Delivery
“See what’s coming soon to your mailbox before it’s actually delivered and manage your packages, too. Conveniently posted on your mobile phone, tablet or computer.”
The Postal Service offers a new feature this year to help manage incoming mail and package deliveries.
Informed Delivery is an innovative feature that allows customers to digitally preview their letter-sized mail before they are delivered to your mailbox.
It also tracks and reschedules package deliveries to ensure someone is able to be home to receive them.
“Informed Delivery is the perfect solution for mailing greeting cards during holiday season ahead of time,” said Product Innovation Vice President Gary Reblin.
Email notifications and the Informed Delivery dashboard and mobile app include images of letter-size mail and colour images from participating mailers.
Package tracking information on Priority Mail Express, Priority Mail and other parcels are available through the Informed Delivery dashboard.
The service is available on the mobile app too — and are planning to add to email notifications this month.
