The plan, Optimized Collections, aka Local Transportation Optimization (LTO), eliminates the evening pickup of mail at post offices for transportation to a processing center. Mail and packages sent at these offices, as well as the mail collected by carriers on their routes, will need to wait until the next morning for collection, when the truck from the processing center drops off the day’s mail for carrier delivery and PO boxes.

The LTO initiative was implemented in Virginia in October (as discussed here) and in Wisconsin in January (as discussed here). Earlier this week, the Postal Service notified unions and management associations that the LTO initiative will be implemented at 180 more P&DCs over the coming months.
