I have packages (letter size) that made it to the US from Germany, Ukraine, Latvia and Estonia in less time than the USPS has had them in their sweaty little hands. They are all in the ether.

We all see more and more of this "looping". Most of it has to do with bar code issues but if your letter/package gets into the wrong bin (bin overflowing etc.) it will start an endless journey until a human intervenes. I would say that fully 80% of my tracked mail does this now. How about instead of new delivery vehicles the USPS fix problems that have been around for a decade and which are only getting worse with an acute labor shortage.

I am tracking a package from Latvia that took 8 days to make it to LA and has now been looping in LA for 9 days and counting. The US is becoming a laughingstock.

Watched pot effect?

Adding more data collection points (i.e. several machines in a single line each scan the bar code) and then pushing the scans into the tracking report is not helping anything. USPS could add some code which filters these extra scans in the report but I assume that this is not a priority.
