Post office changes — Electronic custom forms

Customers will now be required to provide electronic customs forms in order to ship out packages at the Northside Post Office and Kapaun Post Office. This is a huge step forward to decrease customer wait time in the facility prior to the start of the holiday season. Customers can create the electronic customs forms by visiting www.usps.com. Customers can choose to either (1) print the electronic customs form from their home or (2) by creating and printing the electronic customs form at the stations located in each Post Office’s lobby. How-To instructions will also be provided at each station.
