Rationalization of our Network of Mail Processing Facilities
Dear Valued Customer,
The United States Postal Service is planning to resume the rationalization of our network of mail processing facilities which began in 2012. To provide adequate time for planning and preparation, the Postal Service is providing this six-month advance notice of consolidations, for up to 82 facilities, which will begin early January 2015 and be completed by the fall mailing season.
The Postal Service will provide detailed information about its network rationalization planning in the coming weeks. As with prior network rationalization efforts, the Postal Service will work closely with customers to mitigate potential issues associated with transportation and logistical requirements.
In 2012 and 2013, the Postal Service consolidated 141 mail processing facilities.
Why are we taking this step now?
Over the past three years, the Postal Service recorded financial losses of $26 billion.
We believe strongly that this phase of network rationalization will establish the low-cost, technology-centric delivery platform necessary to serve the mailing and shipping industry for decades to come. We look forward to discussing our specific plans for our network in the coming weeks.
The list of facilities to be consolidated after January of 2015 is available at http://usps.com/ourfuturenetwork.
