FREDERICK, MD — The U.S. Postal Service will hold a public meeting to discuss its proposal to move some mail processing operations from Frederick Processing and Distribution Facility into Baltimore Processing and Distribution Center.
The meeting will take place Tuesday, May 10 at 7:00 p.m. at Frederick High School in the auditorium, 650 Carroll parkway, Frederick, MD 21701.
With the deep decline in mail volume due to current economic conditions and continuing electronic diversion, the Postal Service has an excess of employees and equipment in some mail processing operations. A study was begun on February 1, 2011 at Frederick Processing Distribution Facility to determine the feasibility of consolidating redundant operations to see if any efficiencies and cost savings would be achieved.
Initial study results support consolidating some mail processing operations that are currently being performed at the Frederick Processing and Distribution Facility by taking advantage of available processing capacity at the Baltimore Processing and Distribution Center in order to increase efficiency and improve productivity.
While no final decision has been reached, Postal Service managers will give an overview of the reasons for the proposal and its possible outcomes, and will listen to community input and concerns. A summary of the proposal and presentation materials will be made available on usps.com one week before the meeting date.
