Post Office Starts Sunday Delivery Service For Amazon

Even as the United States Postal Service wants to scale back on its normal delivery schedule, the mail service is picking up a little extra Sunday business on the side.

The USPS announced a new pilot program for the New York and Los Angeles metro areas that will deliver packages for Amazon.com on Sundays, starting immediately.

Sunday delivery for Amazon will bring the Postal Service a much-needed boost to its revenue, as well as benefit Amazon, which will get reliable and relatively inexpensive shipping service on the one day of the week mail carriers aren’t pushing through rain, sleet or dark of night.

Though the expanded service will only be available in the NY and LA areas to start, it is expect the Sunday delivery service will expand next year to other locations in the U.S., such as Dallas, Houston, New Orleans and Phoenix.
