NAVSUP announces 2020 holiday peak mailing season deadlines

For a successful holiday mailing season, NAVSUP postal operations recommends customers focus on adequate packaging, proper addressing, and following recommended mail-by dates to make sure their packages arrive by Dec. 25.

“NAVSUP Postal personnel provide postal services all year long and are ready for the significant increase in holiday mail,” said Naval Supply Systems Command (NAVSUP) Navy Postal Operations Manager Dale Pinchart. “Help us help you. Mail early, use Click-N-Ship to minimize time spent in line when mailing; and when packages arrive, pick up as soon as possible after email notification is received.”
