Give Canada Post a call.



usords refers to the sorting station/facility in Chicago , Illinois , USA .. 430 Miles west of Toronto... This is where 3 packages that I have recently sent via USPS Priority Mail ( Expedited mail out of Canada ) go through .. The 3 parcels were all destined for Eastern USA --1 to a Boston suburb , 1 toNY City( New Hyde Park and another to Connecticut!!!!!THAT'S going 430 WEST of Toronto before heading to the East Coast ( Chicago --> Boston =approx. 800 miles ! )..Toronto --> Boston = 420 miles !! Similar story with NY + Connecticut .. Parcels travelat least twice and even 3 times the distance ( from Toronto ) going through the Chicago sorting area ... INSANE and they call this progress... Toronto to the East coast has Numerous flights everyday .. Why send a parcel 430 miles West before heading to NY or Boston ????Pony Express would be just as quick , I think !!PS : parcel to Connecticut just informed was delivered after 11 days ( USPS Priority Mail ) ... just ... FYI !!!!!!

There are 10 of them, they differ only in the last letter:
USORDA - ISC Chicago IL (usps)
USORDB - ISC Chicago IL (usps)
USORDE - ISC Chicago IL (usps)
USORDF - ISC Chicago IL (usps)
USORDG - ISC Chicago IL (usps)
USORDI - ISC Chicago IL (usps)
USORDK - ISC Chicago IL (usps)
USORDL - Chicago GM Etoe
USORDS - ISC Chicago IL S (usps)
USORDY - ISC ORD Chicago IL (usps)
They are International Mail Processing Center (IMPC) codes. Many more such codes exist.
ISC is "International Service Center"
Etoe is "extraterritorial offices of exchange"

Maybe so
