USPS Possibly Shuttering 170 Post Offices

Postal Service Contemplates Consolidation as Revenue Slumps
December 15, 2009
The U.S. Postal Service could be closing as many as 170 post offices as it looks to consolidate operations.

Earlier this year, the Postal Service conducted a review of about 3,300 retail stations and branches that are in close proximity to each other to determine where consolidation is a feasible option. USPS has filed periodic updates with the Postal Regulatory Commission, identifying certain locations that remain under consideration, though no final decisions have been made.

The potential consolidation comes after a continuing drop in income. The USPS reported a $3.8 billion net loss for the 2009 fiscal year, compared to $2.8 billion last year. The agency also said operating revenue fell 9.1 percent to $68.1 billion, down from $74.9 billion in 2008.

These discouraging figures come even after the Postal Service implemented a plan that cut costs by $6 billion. The agency reduced its workforce by approximately 40,000 employees, and cut more than 115 million work hours (the equivalent of 65,000 full-time workers). Other actions included closing six district offices, selling obsolete facilities, consolidating mail processing operations, halting construction of new buildings and hiring and salary freezes.

In addition, a $4 billion reduction in required annual payments for retiree health benefits was passed into law for fiscal 2009.

"Our 2009 fiscal year proved to be one of the most challenging in the history of the Postal Service," said CFO Joseph Corbett. He cited the recession and consumers' continuing transition from mail to electronic alternatives as reasons for the decline in revenue. According to the Postal Services's annual report, total mail volume dropped 13 percent, or 25 million pieces.

"To shore up its finances, the Postal Service is looking at every aspect of its business to economize," said Steven J. Forte, senior vice president of operations. "Reducing over-capacity in retail and delivery operations is a smart business move."

The Postal Service is the largest retail network in the nation, with more than 36,000 post offices, branches and other stations. Additionally, about 56,000 other locations such as supermarkets and drug stores sell postage, as well as approximately 18,000 ATMs.
