USPS is Ready to Deliver the Holidays with Newly-Installed Machines


Rare behind-the-scene media opportunity to view USPS holiday mail processing operations

As part of our 10-year Delivering for America plan, the Postal Service is investing $40 billion to modernize its operations, including investments to accommodate growing customer demand for package delivery. The Postal Service continues to remain "Holiday Ready" by proactively thinking ahead to provide more predictable service to our customers in advance of the much-anticipated holiday season. In addition, the plan includes $20 billion going towards our mail and package processing network, including USPS facility space upgrades and procurement of new processing equipment. 

We’d like to invite you to visit the Spokane Processing and Distribution Center on November 29, 2022, to see these processing machines in action. 


Tuesday, November 29, at 4:00 p.m. (Arrival time begins 3:45 P.M.)
