Sometimes weather is an issue, and sometimes packages just aren't scanned into the carrier's system at intermediary stops, so it looks like nothing is happening. It's not uncommon for USPS to skip package scans when they're running behind in order to allow them to move packages quicker than otherwise since additional scanning also means additional processing time.We've reached out to USPS to determine how we can better update customers when these types of things happen, but thus far it's still a work in progress.Whatever reason you have a problem with USPS share with Is Down Right Now. Mail service, the main issues that will impact users the most would be a outage and of course mail or packages getting lost or not turning up for delivery when they were supposed to, and if this happens we want to know about it.The USPS (United States Postal Service) now has over 617,000 workers with over 211,000 vehicles working to get you delivery to you.

The tracking information isn't being updated by USPS as it should be, and we can understand your frustration in having to wait for the package.
I've never had a situation when package is delivered and it is not scanned. I would say that their scanning is reliable about 95% of the time, but that other 5% of orders can be a real pain.
I had issues with them not scanning during the transit stages. I would also point out that there has been a major lag in USPS scans updating into Amazon tracking over the past few months - often it takes 1 to 2 days for the information you can see on to update to Amazon.
My buyers kept bugging me about not dropping off the packages. Be sure you check the tracking number though and not just through Amazon if there's an issue.
Complaining to USPS and/or your local postmaster can help sometimes.
