Mail items sent to addresses across the Earth Class Mail network must be collected and forwarded to our processing facility in Beaverton, Oregon. It typically takes between 1 to 5 days for mail to arrive at our processing facility depending on your address. Once the mail arrives, it typically takes us less than 24 hours to place the items in your inbox.
A number of factors affect how long it will take for mail to arrive in your Earth Class Mail mailbox. In this article, we’ll break down each of those factors and explain their role in impacting delivery times.
Three Factors That Impact Delivery Times
- Mail Class, or type (bulk, first class, expedited, etc.)
- Postmark Date
How Mail Class Impacts When You Receive It
The United States Postal Service, and other carriers, control how long it takes each mail class, or type, to arrive at its addressed destination. Overnight, express and the various other forms of expedited mail will arrive sooner.
The United States Postal Service and other carriers observe holidays that affect delivery even if Earth Class Mail is open and processing mail items.
We do not process mail on New Years Day, Martin Luther King Day, Memorial Day, Independence Day, Labor Day, Veterans Day, Thanksgiving Day, and Christmas Day. On these days, mail will not be inducted or processed.
Additionally, on rare occasions, a weather-related event may delay deliveries.
Mail delivery timetables vary by carrier and depend on which address you are using to receive mail from within Earth Class Mail’s vast network of addresses. All mail is routed to our processing facility in Beaverton, Oregon, and is typically processed within one business day after it’s received at the processing facility.
