Hampden mail facility braces for the worst amid consolidation confusion

December 26, 2023


Maine’s postal workers are rallying support as the Hampden mail processing facility undergoes a study that some fear could lead to a consolidation of its operations.

U.S. Sen. Susan Collins’ office revealed in late November that the U.S. Postal Service had announced a study of the Hampden facility. It would explore whether it makes sense to consolidate operations in Hampden to a facility in Scarborough, roughly 130 miles away, she said.

The senator opposes the move and wrote in a letter to U.S. Postmaster General Louis DeJoy that consolidating the facilities would have a detrimental effect on services and postal customers across the state.

Stephen Doherty, a regional spokesperson for the Postal Service, said that there are no plans to close the Eastern Maine Processing and Distribution Facility.
