Saves money, more filling

Saving money and improving service are just two of the benefits of a Headquarters processing operations program to address rising costs in air transportation.

In May, the Margaret L. Sellers Processing and Distribu­tion Center in San Diego, CA, began using the tray consol­idation initiative (TCI) — a program that allows mail processing facilities to consolidate air destination volumes into fewer trays through a sortation program redesign and by using fewer machines.

Thanks to expert operational management and employee participation, San Diego increased the average weight per letter tray by more than 3 lbs. the first night, resulting in a reduction of 695 trays.
