USPS to Consolidate 200-Plus Processing Facilities
WASHINGTON, DC—The U.S. Postal Service has completed its study of 264 Area Mail Processing facilities and has found 223 of them to be feasible for consolidation, all or in part. The move would reportedly put 35,000 Postal Service jobs at stake. The network consolidation would reduce operating costs by $2.6 billion annually and result in a net savings of $2.1 billion.
