USPS Invites Media to Tour Mail Processing Operations


South Florida media representatives are invited to behind-the-scenes tours of mail processing operations in Miami and Opa-locka in early November.

The U.S. Postal Service is ready for a successful 2021 holiday season:

-- Hiring 40,000 delivery and mail processing personnel nationwide (including several hundred in South Florida)

-- Leasing millions of additional square feet of sortation facilities (including a Package Support Annex in Opa-locka to supplement the Royal Palm Processing and Distribution Center)

-- Installing new processing equipment (currently a package sorter is being installed  at the Package Support Annex in Opa-Locka, FL).

It’s all part of the Postmaster General’s “Delivering for America” 10-Year Plan ---     which includes $40 billion in new investments --- to achieve financial sustainability and service excellence.
