The U.S. Postal Service’s controversial new service changes went into effect Friday, potentially slowing down as much as 30% of first class mail—here’s how the changes might affect your mail delivery:


The service changes, part of USPS’s broader new 10-year strategic plan, will extend the service standard for some first class mail and periodicals from three days to five days.

The change will specifically impact mail that’s traveling further distances, as USPS stops moving as many items by airplane and transports more mail by truck.

According to an analysis of the plan from the Washington Post, mail that travels up to 140 miles should still arrive within two days and mail that travels up to 930 miles should arrive within three, but mail that goes further than that would take four or five days under the new plan.

So expect the 5 days if you have to mail something from the East Coast to the West, for example and vice versa
