Joe Cortese says his company, NobleSpirit, relies on the U.S. Postal Service to ship thousands of packages containing stamps and collectibles each year. But starting in June, he and his wife, Polly, began noticing problems with shipments.
“When we have something that has value, we are mindful of the progress it is making,” he says from his company’s base in rural Pittsfield, New Hampshire. “Packages that would take two, three or four days were literally taking three weeks, even four weeks.”
