Come view behind-the-scenes operations of Santa’s helpers!
The Quad Cities Processing & Distribution Center will handle millions of mail and parcels this holiday season. We are opening up our mail and parcel 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 really great visuals of high-tech, high-speed processing, large chutes of parcels, automated systems, and people sorting mail and parcels manually.
When & Where:
Thursday, December 5 from 5:00 PM to 6:00PM (tour starts promptly at 5:00)
Quad Cities Processing & Distribution Center
7700 68th St, Milan, IL
