What has happened to shipping options in the last few years?

Post by JoeN » Fri Feb 17, 2017 4:07 pm

It's been a while since I placed an order. Last time there was a USPS shipping option which has always been both inexpensive and quality service. I still use it with OSHPark and Digikey and they ship quite a distance and it's never more than 72 hours. Now the cheapest option was FedEx "SmartPost" which, in my experience, is crap because of the way they have to hand it off. I'm a little disappointed with this approach. What was the reasoning of changing this delivery option? The item I ordered was the ESP32 breakout board which probably weighs half an ounce.
