MIAMI (CBSMiami) – Cost cutting measures and a shrinking work force at the U.S. Postal Service has led to delivery delays across some parts of the country.

Mail delivery delays in South Florida, Atlanta, Washington D.C., Richmond, Virginia and Arlington, Virginia are some of the worst in the country, according to a new report this week by the U.S. Postal Service Office of Inspector General. If found that deliveries were made after 5 p.m. more than four days a week around 70-percent of the time.

The agency’s goal is complete deliveries by 5 p.m. 95-percent of the time.

According to the report, nationwide mail was delivered late about 38 percent of days last year, compared to 25
percent back in 2011.
