U.S. Postal Service Invites South Florida Media to Tour International and Military Mail Processing Operations in Miami


The U.S. Postal Service is inviting South Florida media representatives to a behind-the-scenes tour of international and military mail operations in late October.

At the Miami International Service Center (ISC), one of six postal facilities of its kind in the United States, a dedicated team of 300 employees process inbound and outbound international and military mail 24 hours a day, seven days a week, 365 days a year.

November 6 is the first recommended shipping date to send packages to military personnel who are stationed around the world. Postal employees are committed to making sure that those serving in the U.S. Armed Forces receive their gifts in time for the holidays. Nationwide, the U.S. Postal Service estimates processing more than 12.6 million pounds of mail to APO (Air/Army Post Office), FPO (Fleet Post Office), and DPO (Diplomatic Post Office) destinations this holiday season.

Miami ISC Plant Manager Sheldon Dixon, along with Joint Military Postal Activity (JMPA) representatives, will serve as spokespersons during the tour.
