USPS Consolidates 5 District Offices

Share this content:
Five of the U.S. Postal Service's 85 district offices are being consolidated into nearby districts.


In the Northeast Area, the administrative functions of the Springfield, MA, district are being absorbed by the New Hampshire and Middlesex-Central (MA) districts.


In the Eastern Area, the administrative functions of Ohio's Akron district office will be absorbed by the Cincinnati and Cleveland districts, and those of Pennsylvania's Lancaster district will be absorbed by the Philadelphia and Harrisburg districts. Also, some administrative functions of the Harrisburg district will shift to the Philadelphia district.


The Pacific Area's Long Beach district functions will be absorbed by the Los Angeles and Santa Ana districts, and the San Jose district functions will be consolidated into those of the Oakland, Sacramento and Van Nuys districts.


The changes take effect July 26. The five district offices will be closed Nov. 14.


Area vice presidents in the affected districts said it became necessary to adjust field administrative functions to increase efficiency given declining mail volume. They also said the changes will not affect service. Mail-processing and customer service operations for the communities served by the affected districts remain unchanged.
