Area Mail Processing Facility Study Results Announced


The results of the Area Mail Processing (AMP) facility studies announced last September are now available at


Implementation of any consolidation or closure, however, is contingent upon the outcome of proposed revisions to existing service standards. In addition, no network changes will be implemented prior to May 15 of this year, in keeping with a moratorium on closing or consolidating postal facilities intended to give Congress and the Administration the opportunity to enact an alternative plan.


There will be no changes at this time to retail services and business mail acceptance located at any of the facilities involved in these studies. Destination Sectional Center Facility (DSCF) discounts will continue to be available in the near-term for mailings entered at Business Mail Entry Units (BMEUs) that remain in impacted facilities.


There will be no major consolidations during the fall mailing season, nor during the election mailing period, and Facility Access and Shipment Tracking (FAST®) appointments will be expanded to support shifting volumes across the network.


All of us at the Postal Service™ value your business and your support. Over the coming months, we will continue to keep you informed, and will work closely with you to ensure a smooth transition.
