Postal Service once again considering moving Beaumont mail processing operations to Houston
Houston - U.S. Postal Service
The U.S. Postal Service has resumed the study proposal to move mail processing operations from Beaumont, TX Processing and Distribution Facility (P&DF) into North Houston, TX Processing and Distribution Center (P&DC) and has scheduled a public meeting to discuss the updated proposal.
The meeting will take place at MCM Elegante Hotel, 2355 I-10, Beaumont TX 77705 on Thursday, May 16, 2013 at 6 p.m.
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.
The updated study supports consolidating mail processing operations that are currently being performed at the Beaumont P&DF by taking advantage of available processing capacity at the North Houston P&DC 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 online one week prior to the meeting at http://about.usps.com/streamlining-operations/area-mail-processing.htm.
