US Postal Service audit blames contractors for failures at Greensboro distribution center

GREENSBORO, N.C. — A June report from the United States Postal Service’s Office of Inspector General said the Greensboro regional processing plant is the nation’s third-highest when it comes to lateness.

Contractors working with the plant were faulted as the reason for numerous “late trips” and failures. The plant is located on Pleasant Ridge Road, not far from the Piedmont Triad International Airport.

The audit of the Greensboro Processing and Distribution Center (P&DC) was for the fiscal year 2019, which was between October 1 of that year to March 31, 2020. The report stated that the Postal Service’s 2.1 million late trips nationwide were due to contractor failure. It ranked Greensboro’s processing plant third-highest in the number of late trips.
