Livingston Mail Service


Recommended Posts

What is the real status of our USPS service. This is my first mail request in 4 weeks so since that time we have had Harvey and the Flood.

Before the flooding, Mail would be picked up in Livingston and normally in a few hours be in N Houston for processing and soon be in transit for Wisconsin Regional Center

The Aug delivery went to Chicago area distribution center and was lost  ?? for a day or so before heading west. This is the current status of this delivery.

September 20, 2017, 2:07 am Arrived at USPS Regional Origin Facility NORTH HOUSTON TX DISTRIBUTION CENTER 
September 20, 2017, 12:52 am Accepted at USPS Origin Facility LIVINGSTON, TX 77399 
September 19, 2017, 2:39 pm Item Accepted/Picked Up for Initial Processing


Does Houston still having problems still after 3-4 years of troubles.

We have never had any problems with our mail. I believe the mail goes to Houston each afternoon. Truck comes up in the morning, is unloaded, reloaded and sent back to Houston. Then processed. After that the route it takes is up to the USPS. The same thing occurs with UPS and FEDEX. Items go different routes, not necessarily how we think they should go but how the business thinks it should go.

The Rest of the Story.

I received my Priority Mail Saturday or 4 day delivery. That service goes back several years when Houston had distribution problems from I call the Right Hand doesn't know what the Left Hand is doing. My summer mail used to got to a Northern Illinois distribution center which the USPS closed and used a Wisconsin center which then USPS provided 2-3 day delivery. But the last two mailing came through Chicago area centers with 4-5 day service. I assume the 2-3 day delivery is not compatible with Snail Mail.lol

On occaision for no reason I can understand I have received mail overnight.

Sometimes the mail comes through amazingly quickly! Nearly all mail today travels long distances by air so if the timing is just right it can be very quick.
