UNDATED -- Some changes are coming to the United States Post Office (USPS) starting Friday.

The USPS is implementing new service standards for First-Class Mail and periodicals in an effort to increase delivery reliability, consistency and efficiency for customers.

As a result, time-in-transit standards will increase by 1 or 2 days for certain mail that is traveling longer distances.

The USPS says most First-Class Mail and periodicals will be unaffected by the changes. However, postal officials are encouraging customers to plan ahead--and if sending mail long-distance--mail it early.
