2-3 Getting Started

2-3.1 Initial Considerations

Before undertaking an AMP feasibility study, consider the following:

  1. The service impact that consolidation will have on the community as measured by service indicators, such as (but not limited to) Customer Satisfaction Measurement, External First-Class (EXFC), and other service performance reports.
  2. Service standard changes, including upgrades or downgrades for First-Class Mail®, Priority Mail®, and other mail classes.
  3. Impacts on customer services, such as collection box pick-up times, location and hours for acceptance by the business mail entry unit (BMEU), retail availability, and drop shipment changes.
  4. Impacts to the operating plan at the gaining and losing facilities associated with the 24-hour clock indicators.
  5. Future equipment deployment.
  6. Likelihood of potential savings and efficiencies.
