>This is very good news for consumers and businesses that offer US Postal Service Express Mail service. You can imagine for high dollar parcels you do not want to chance a carrier leaving at someone’s door step. The shipper gets a guaranteed signature. If the package is being delivered to a rural area, USPS can save money on labor and gas by consolidating all inbound shipments to the local office.

USPS Express Mail ‘Hold For Pickup’ Available for Online Shippers: “A Hold For Pickup package is shipped directly to a Post Office, instead of being left at the recipient’s address. The package is then held at the Post Office until picked up anytime during office hours.”
