Postal Service Changes May Leave Some Customers Stranded
It won’t be a 20th-century post office for long.
The United States Postal Service is in the process of revising its procedures for sorting and delivering mail. The USPS has launched an initiative that over the next decade will see the creation of centralized Sorting and Delivery Centers (S&DCs) which will theoretically streamline its distribution process. And, sources say, those changes will be felt in the Delaware Valley.
“The goal of this initiative is to make significant improvements to the delivery network to better serve the American public and our business customers more efficiently and effectively,” said USPS spokesperson Paul Smith. “As part of this plan, carrier operations will shift, where feasible, to new S&DCs. These S&DCs will be optimized and configurable based on local market conditions – with many new S&DCs to be co-located in existing plants.
