November 29, 2011
An Area Mail Processing (AMP) study was initiated to evaluate the transfer of destinating mail processing operations from the Huntsville Processing and Distribution Center (P&DC) to the Birmingham AL Processing and Distribution Center (P&DC). The initial results of the study support the business case for consolidation.
This study, currently in review at United States Postal Service Headquarters and its Area Office, is subject to change.
A public meeting will be held to share the initial results of the study and allow members of the community to ask questions and provide feedback. The public’s input will be considered prior to a final decision. The meeting will be held on Wednesday, December 14, at 7:00 p.m., at Decatur Utilities, 1002 Central Parkway, Decatur, AL 35601. Below are preliminary highlights from the study:
Below is a breakdown of the estimate of annual savings: Annual Mail Processing Employee Savings $ 3,694,268 Annual Management Savings $ 607,569 Annual Maintenance Savings $ 2,707,377 Annual Transportation Savings $ 1,330,422 Proposed annual savings in the draft AMP feasibility study are approximately $8,339,636
