Postal Service Provides Rare Tour of Holiday Mail Processing in Denver, CO

Come view behind-the-scenes operations of Santa’s helpers!


The Denver General Mail Facility will handle millions of mail pieces and packages this holiday season. We are opening our sorting operation to the media for one day only.

We will show customers what happens behind the curtain when their mail and packages leave the Post Office. It’s industrial, but there are some great visuals of high-tech, high-speed processing, large chutes of parcels, automated systems, and people sorting mail and parcels manually. 


We will have a spokesperson on hand to talk about mailing tips, deadlines and ways to save money and time.

A facility manager will conduct the tour and speak about the equipment, transportation, and employees.
