We told you last week that Monday will be the busiest mailing day of the year. But exactly how busy will it get?
In Idaho alone, more than 2.4 million cards, letters and packages are expected to be mailed today. That breaks down to 100,800 pieces per hour, 1,680 per minute or 28 per second.
Across the country, 611 million pieces of mail will be mailed today. That’s 7,000 per second.
Throughout the holiday season, postal carriers across the U.S. will deliver 750 million packages. That’s a 12 percent increase from 2015 and double the number from just four years ago.
