Fort Wayne's Mail Processing May Go To South Bend

FORT WAYNE, Ind. (Indiana’s NewsCenter) - The U.S. Postal Service plans to conduct a study at the Fort Wayne Processing and Distribution Facility for possible consolidation of some operations into the South Bend Processing and Distribution Center.

The study involves a review of the mail processing and transportation operations to determine capacity needs at a facility in order to increase efficiency and improve productivity.

The need for the study comes as the Postal Service has seen a 20 percent decline in mail volume since 2007.

The Postal Service expects that when the economy fully recovers the public will likely not increase their use of the mail system.

A public meeting will be held to allow members of the community to ask questions and provide feedback. This input will be considered in the final proposal.
