On the Road Again

On the road again

Recently, an HCR truck that services the Casa Grande, AZ, Post Office broke down before it had a chance to pick up pre-close items, including Priority Mail Express. Facing the possibility of late delivery, Casa Grande Postmaster Ross Pfaff Jr. grabbed the Priority Mail Express at his office and fired up his motorcycle.

Pfaff drove to Maricopa, collected that station’s Priority Mail Express, and made an MVS connection at Chandler for the collected items.

“I had to strap the box to my seat and loaded my trunk with the rest of it, but we made the connection and none of the Express was late or refunded that day,” said Pfaff.

    This is the kind of dedication you only see from Postmaster’s. It’s a shame the postal service is trying to get rid of so many of them.
