USPS: More Cities – USPS, Amazon expand Sunday delivery

The Postal Service has expanded Sunday package delivery to Amazon customers in 15 cities in Indiana, Kentucky, Louisiana, Ohio, Oklahoma, Texas and Pennsylvania.

Cities include Indianapolis, IN; Louisville and Lexington, KY; New Orleans and Shreveport, LA; Cincinnati and Columbus, OH; Oklahoma City, OK; Philadelphia, PA; and Austin, College Station, Dallas, Houston, San Antonio and Waco, TX.

To participate, Amazon Prime customers add items to their shopping carts. At checkout, they can see whether Sunday delivery is available in the destination.

The Postal Service called the expansion a winning proposition for both organizations.

By offering Sunday delivery, the Postal Service is focused on serving the needs of valued customers in today’s busy online world.

“We know our Amazon customers love the convenience of everyday delivery, and we’re excited to be offering Sunday delivery in more cities across the U.S,” said Amazon VP of North America Operations Mike Roth.

The Postal Service began delivering packages Nov. 10 to Amazon customers in nearly 1,000 ZIP Codes in 13 postal districts primarily in metropolitan Los Angeles and New York.
