You can also have your mail pre-stamped or picked up from a collection box/individual mailbox. This means that the origin facility is normally the larger or primary post office in your area.

The item’s initial shipping method is also determined here.

Why is my USPS origin package stuck?
It can be frustrating to not see track updates at any point during shipping. But it can be even more frustrating when you don’t see tracking updates right away after shipping your package.
You might find your package held up for a while at your local postoffice. But it is rare. Most packages reach their destination within 24 hours.
You may find that your package leaves the origin facility before the tracking information has been updated. Sometimes the USPS’s system may not be as efficient or reliable as it should.
Either contact the local postal office and confirm your package has been lost or wait for tracking information to update.
