STATEWIDE — The United States Postal Service is already preparing for the holiday season.
U.S. Postal Service Communications Specialist Steve Doherty said they are making a major investment in infrastructure as a part of the Postal Service’s new “Delivering for America” plan.
He said there are 138 new package sorting machines going in around the country.
According to Doherty, they are also ramping up hiring not just for the holidays, but also for after them.
“It’s not a job for everyone. It is physically demanding. But for the right person, it’s a good step toward a career that can be very worthwhile,” Doherty said.
Last year, Doherty said the Postal Service was backed up between people shopping online for everyday items and holiday gifts.
He said they don’t expect that to change this year, but they plan to be better prepared for the package volume.
