Delays in transit are usually an internal issue within the local post office-- this could be due to a number of factors including, not enough equipment to transport mail, road closures, understaffed facilities, and mistakes while sorting mail. Most of the time, these sort themselves out, only rarely do domestic packages get lost in transit. Please be patient if delivery is taking longer than expected.
