STEWART AIRPORT – Ten postal facilities nationwide have been identified by the Postal Service to become sorting and delivery centers and the giant Mid-Hudson Processing and Distribution Center at Stewart Airport is on the list to become a sorting and delivery center (S&DC).
It is part of the 10-year plan to modernize the delivery network by combining and centralizing carrier operations in the large centers.
As part of the plan, carrier operations will shift, where feasible, to new S&DCs that have better infrastructure and adequate space, docks, conveyors and material handling equipment for more efficient operations, a postal spokesman said. It will also provide for more efficient operations while modernizing and leveraging current underutilized and vacant postal facilities, he said.
Postal retail units, including PO Box service, will remain in operation, but carrier operations will shift to the Stewart center and others like it around the nation
