US-Centric

This article ignores the history of package delivery in other countries, notably the country of England, which had a commercial postal delivery service several hundred years before that of the US. I would therefore encourage anyone with knowledge of package delivery in other countries to contribute (cf. defaultlogic.com resource Countering Systemic Bias Project) --Gilgongo (talk) 22:44, 13 January 2008 (UTC)

True, though package delivery is not quite the same as parcel post, which I presume you are referring to, though that article need expansion. Cheers ww2censor (talk) 03:07, 14 January 2008 (UTC)

USPS ad

Most of the bottom part of the article looks like an advertising of USPS.. especially in reference to their tracking and "low-cost" services. There are almost no citations. --Preceding unsigned comment added by 173.3.246.53 (talk) 02:36, 31 December 2010 (UTC)

  • I have cleaned up some to this.Pkgx (talk) 13:22, 13 November 2015 (UTC)

heavy goods

There is a need for discussion of heavy packaged goods via package delivery services. This is certainly not the same as bulk cargo. I have cleaned up the previous section of this subject to remove excessive commercial links. Pkgx (talk) 03:18, 24 February 2018 (UTC)

I disagree there is a need for this. The article is about the delivery of packages and not about any other non-package services provided by companies that happen to do package delivery. Your addition belongs in details about the services provided by such companies or that type of service and not about an entirely different type of service. Besides which most of the addition is unsourced and if it is not suited to Cargo, according to you, than it probably belongs in a "Distribution" section, if one needs writing, of the Logistics or Distribution (marketing) articles but not here. ww2censor (talk) 10:08, 24 February 2018 (UTC)
    • The lead section provides the scope of the article. It clearly states that this is home delivery of packages, including larger ones by less-than-truckload logistics providers. Heavy goods are included. I agree that this section lacks sources: I removed the commercial links from the earlier version of this section. I will look for some other references.
