USPS Resumes International Mail Service to Haiti
The U.S. Postal Service resumed international mail service to the nation of Haiti today as efforts to restore limited postal services gain momentum in the wake of the devastating earthquake in January that destroyed much of Haiti Post's infrastructure and service capacity. A temporary hold issued Jan. 15 for mail accepted for delivery to Haiti has been lifted, and air transport of international letters and packages from the U.S. has resumed, allowing mail volumes to begin flowing to Haiti as airlift and operational capacity expand. The U.S. Postal Service has continued to accept mail for Haiti and held it for delivery at five International Service Centers. Over 2,000 pounds of international mail will be entered into Haiti throughout the week.
