New program improves mail processing

without comments

An effort involving the collaboration of unions and management is underway at plants across the country to transform the way USPS processes the mail. It’s called Lean Mail Processing and includes a certification program.

Part of the Network Optimization DRIVE initiative, Lean Mail Processing is being implemented at 76 plants throughout the network. To date, the South Jersey P&DC, the site of a lean processing pilot, and the Margaret L. Sellers P&DC in San Diego District have earned certifications. The program will expand to the remainder of processing facilities beginning in January.
