USPS Drop Ship Consolidations Kilmer NJ

without comments

Dear Valued Industry Stakeholder,

This is to update you on the change to U.S. Postal Service’s plans to consolidate mail processing operations at the Kilmer NJ Processing Distribution Center. In May, we notified you of the conclusion of the AMP study of Kilmer P&DC. The previously announced decision moves some mail processing operations from the Kilmer P&DC to the Dominick V Daniels P&DC in response to workload, declining volume and revenue.

The original decision announcement stated we were looking to begin the consolidation in January 2014. However, in the May notification we also indicated that it was possible operational requirements could advance this consolidation to a date sooner than January 2014. Accordingly, the Kilmer facility scheduled move has been moved up and will be moving the AADC and SCF processing operations beginning October 2012.

Existing Retail and Business Mail Entry operations will continue at the Kilmer NJ Facility for customer’s convenience. The Kilmer facility will continue to accept Destination Delivery Unit (DDU) dropship mail for the ZIP Codes served by them.

Mailers who prepare Destination entry rate or “discounted” mailings for the Kilmer NJ P&DC ZIP Codes may begin taking their drop shipment to Dominick V Daniels P&DC effective with the labeling list changes October 15, 2012. Customers will have a grace period until December 31, 2012 to incorporate this change into their systems and processes. All dropships must be in compliance with the labeling list changes by January 1, 2013.

Please share this message with others who may be interested.
