Reasons for Using Certified Mail
Even though for majority of the time that it has been in existence, the traditional mail system has properly worked and served its purpose diligently but has not been without its occasional failures and shortcomings that sometimes have cost its customers and lots in terms of times and money. Complaints of people using the letters and parcels were very rampant with the traditional mailing service and still are even today. Certified mail is to a large extent similar to the traditional mail of sending letters and parcels to the post office but is also at the same time and improved version of the traditional mailing service.
Certified mail is a mailing system where letters and parcels are sent from one point to another, just like traditional mailing system but with improvements made to ensure that letters are arriving to the intended receiver and parcels gets to the people that they were being sent. To this commonly asked question, as to how certified mail resolves the issues that have been raised in response to the traditional mailing system is that certified mail uses a unique number tracking system whereby every letter that is sent and every parcel that is sent is given a unique number that is used to track the letter and track the parcel through the period of time that the letter of the parcel will be in transit. The unique number attached to the letter or attached to the parcel is then used to monitor the letter and to also monitor the parcel through the entire time that the parcel or the letter is in transit. The moment the letter arrives to its intended destination, the intended receiver signs and acknowledges that they have received the letter and the date and the time which the receiver received the letter is noted down and the deliveryman delivers the information back to this end of the letter.
The information noted down by the deliveryman upon delivering the letter of the parcel, is brought back to the sender of the letter hence answering to this commonly asked question of how they would know that the letter order the parcel arrived to its intended destination or its intended receiver. If for one reason or another recipient of the letter of the parcel did not want the sender to know that they had received the parcel for the letter, the information that was collected by the deliveryman upon successfully delivering the letter or a parcel to the recipient serves as good evidence and proof that the letter was delivered and that the recipient actually received and signed for having received the letter or parcel.
To this commonly asked question of how secure letters and parcels are as they are being sent to the mailing system, certified mail addresses it by using the tracking number hence offering a more secure and trustworthy system of sending letters and parcels.
