If you think nobody cares about you... just forget to pay your credit card bill

anyone have experience with ISC CHICAGO IL (USPS).  Ordered something from overseas and my package tracking has stalled there for a week+.  In my quick research this seems to be a fairly frequent issue.

Had to deal with them a few times. I would just kiss your package goodbye. The funniest part about them is they ceased to exist over two years ago. I guess they need to update their system.  :)
I just found a new supply of forks!

AFAIK it merged with another facility. The problem is mainly the e-packs from China. They are not properly packaged for the types of machines they are processed on.

Awfully hard to determine the proper postage needed for a first class letter/card on their website.

After waiting 3 weeks for my package and calling numerous times they just sent it back to the sender,

So I called them up to reroute it to me;

USPS: That's not possible.

Me: If UPS and FedEx can do it why shouldn't you be able to do it?

USPS: Ahh, they're smaller then us, we're much bigger then they are that's why we can't do that.....

Ordered an amazon package to my office, came USPS.  Just got a message that they tried to deliver it today at 2:19, but "business closed." 

No, we have a huge staffed mailroom, which definitely was not closed today.

They do that often with amazon packages, so that they can show amazon they were on time but you were not there.
They were probably running a Subday schedule today of only amazon packages but missed your package.

Got the same message an hour ago. The truck didn't even done by then (checked the security camera).
What's Amazon usual comp for this? Extra prime or something better? Should I waste my time?

You can get an extra free month of Prime.

It happens to me alot when my package is scheduled to arrive on shabbos. They always deliver it the following day.

If Amazon doesn't deliver on time...they'll give an extra month of prime for free...but you can push for them to give you credit. I once got $25 credit. Also FEDEX may have the nicest tracking but out of all the shipping comp. (DHL, UPS, USPS, FEDEX)

A study by consumer reports where they shipped packages with sensors (detect temp, drop length) found that Fedex was the worst w/ dropping packages at a pretty high height...and USPS won w/ the best care of packages.

Will search for source if you guys insist.
