Postmaster General Louis DeJoy updated employees on the Postal Service’s progress under the Delivering for America plan during a series of recent stops across the nation.
In Georgia, DeJoy toured the Atlanta Network Distribution Center and the Acworth, GA, Carrier Annex, where USPS plans to establish sorting and delivery centers that will improve operational efficiency and offer employees more modern workplaces.
He also visited with employees at other facilities, including the North Atlanta Post Office.
Later, the postmaster general traveled to Alaska, where he visited the Anchorage Processing and Distribution Center, the Bethel Post Office and an office that serves the Akiak Native community.
DeJoy then traveled to Washington state, where he met with employees at the Tacoma Processing and Distribution Center. Next, he went to Seattle to visit that city’s Network Distribution Center, Priority Mail Annex, and Processing and Distribution Center.
At each stop, the postmaster general discussed a variety of topics related to Delivering for America, including new equipment, efforts to convert part-time workers to career status and boost services that help business customers offer more same-day and next-day deliveries.
“It’s important for the men and women of the Postal Service to understand the progress we’re making under the Delivering for America plan,” DeJoy said. “I appreciated the opportunity to meet with our employees, bring them up to speed and thank them for their efforts to modernize our organization and make it more efficient and self-sustaining.”
