I wouldn't think there would be any hiccups in this as all the major delivery companies deliver to the local postal locations daily as we deliver a great quantity of their small parcels for them.
The biggest issue I would see would be, depending on your location, the time spent waiting in lines to pick up your package at the counter. With PO box customers there is the option of the parcels lockers although I wouldn't know if there would be adequate space for an increase in packages.
Let us know if you have the opportunity to use the service and also how it works for you. BTW please say there isn't a charge for this "service"

Now the PO told me they forward mail from the street address to the PO box for only 1 year but occasionally I still receive mail in my PO box for the old street address. The Amazon delivery went to the PO box. UPS shipped items also go to the PO box. That may be how it works here, YYMV.

If it works as advertised, that will be very helpful for me in being the primary person managing an organization. Currently, for such deliveries, I must use my home address, which is not the best solution.
Does anyone have any experience using this new service?
