What is ISC New York NY(USPS)
ISC New York NY is an abbreviation for New York International Service Center.
This is a facility where all mails and packages leaving the shores of the United States are sorted and packaged for final dispatch to the airport for flights to other countries.
This is also a place, where all mails and packages that arrive in the United States are processed after being checked by Customs, then packaged to be sent to their different destinations.
People often wonder because when mail leaves there, tracking is not updated for days.
That is because it is in a container where the barcodes can’t be read and no update can happen until it arrives in another city and removed from the container for sorting.
What does “processed through facility ISC New York NY(USPS)” mean?

Because of this, so many users began to panic after waiting for several days without getting the delivery of their mail or package. You can visit the ISC International Inbound Mail page to feel the rant.
This information is totally misleading. In the worst-case scenario, this statement can mean that the plane that carried your package or mail has landed at the Airport where the ISC service center is located.

This is ridiculous!
