USPS may move Athens mail processing to Duluth

ATLANTA (AP) — The U.S. Postal Service is planning a public meeting on its proposal to move mail processing operations from an Athens facility to its North Metro Processing and Distribution Center in Duluth.

The meeting is set for 5:30 p.m. Nov. 30 at Hilsman Middle School in Athens.

The Postal Service said in a statement that it has an excess of employees and equipment in some mail processing operations as mail volume has declined.

Officials said that initial results of a study support consolidating mail processing operations in Athens with the North Metro Processing and Distribution Center to increase efficiency and improve productivity.
