Network Rationalization Consolidations list (Winter 2013)

without comments

The Postal Service is proceeding with its two-phased plan to consolidate its network of mail processing locations.  Some phase one consolidation activities were completed in July and August 2012.  Additional phase one consolidations will begin in January 2013. The second phase of these consolidation efforts is planned for 2014.

A list of the postal facilities currently scheduled for consolidation in Winter 2013 has been posted today on the Information for Mailers web page at http://about.usps.com/news/facility-studies/welcome.htm.  It is also available at https://ribbs.usps.gov/importantupdates/NRWinter2013.xls.

The Winter 2013 Network Rationalization Consolidations list will be updated every Friday to reflect changes in operational planning, and make sure you are kept informed as they occur.  The list may be modified if warranted by operational feasibility considerations.

The Winter 2013 list includes 10 facility consolidations continued from Summer 2012, along with 71 other facility consolidations.  Fifteen (15) of the facility consolidations originally planned for Winter 2013 will be postponed until 2014, as will 11 facility consolidations that would otherwise have been continuations from Summer 2012.  Nine (9) consolidations had previously been advanced to 2012 from the original 2013 list.

As a reminder, no BMEUs will move in the near-term. Mailers will receive 120-day notice of BMEU moves and consolidations, any changes to BMEU and DMU hours of operation, and DMU transportation.

Please contact your BME or BSN representative with questions.
