UPS transfered to local post office (is this something new)Local Post Office Exception: As requested by the sender, this shipment has been transferred to the local post office for delivery to the final destination. An event occurred that may impact the delivery.
is this something new. I have always had the big brown truck deliver my packages. Now I have seen two of these exceptions by two different carriers .
My friend on wednesday was tracking a package that seemed to be running late and poof it was at the USPS when it was originally sent out FED EX.
Now I had the same thing happen today an order of rediculously priced cutco knives.
Is this a cheaper delivery option?

It's been going on for a few years that I know of, the package is delivered to the post office for delivery. (I experienced it too w/ a late item)

Ditto... The post office pretty mch has to pass by every mail box every day. Fed X and friends don't..."Common Sense is a flower that doesn't grow in everyone's garden."

There is a logic to it. I was just surprised that it was happening. the fact that two of us stumbled on it the same week for the first time made me wonder if it was something new.

Besides late packages, I've even seen/had this happen when buying small items (small enough packaging) that were shipped by DHL, FedEx and UPS, only to have them drop with USPS and have it mailed/delivered in the mail box.
But yes, its been happening/going on for several years now.

Love how they say....
"As requested by the sender" w/o mentioning they charge sender more to deliver directly. Cheaper for fedex and ups to drop a palate at a local usps and say "hey you'z guys are going that way anys how, mind dropping these off while ya over dare"

it happens often with "basic" delivery

I've had several packages sent DHL on the back end to my local post office who then makes the final delivery. It's quick and cheap.

The USPS is better than people give them credit for.
In my "mail box tree" they have lock boxes for bigger packages, where they put a key to it in my mailbox. I don't miss having UPS drop my motherboard in a mud puddle to "steep" for awhile until I stumble over it...Bill Clinton: "I chose other women over Hillary. You should too!"
