[QUOTE=ricoman;2507297]I’ve complained to newegg about this a couple of times DHL just takes it and drops it off at the PO for local delivery. It takes forever, but it’s free shipping so what are you gonna do? For the first time now, an order from the Sportsman’s Guide using UPS is doing the same thing. I think it would be faster and cheaper just to send it USPS to begin with.[/QUOTE]
Did you know that the USPS makes deals with carriers such as DHL, FEDEX, etc to do local deliveries? Our govt subidies the package delivery services in areas with lite capacity utilization. The last 10% of the delivery cost is cut in half by offloading it to USPS because they’re sort of going that way anyways for traditional delivery. A package delivery service is less on-demand than traditional snal-mail. The cheapest service from a package delivery company is upwards of $5… whereas the USPS does postcards for about 23-30 cents.
