Postal Service to move some Missoula mail operations to Spokane

The United States Postal Service has announced that it will indeed move some of Missoula’s mail operations to Spokane, Washington.

In a statement on Tuesday, the Postal Service said it will transfer “mail processing outgoing operations” from the Missoula Processing and Distribution Center to the Spokane Processing and Distribution Center.

That means that the Missoula facility will remain open but will now be converted into what the Postal Service calls a “Local Processing Center.”

“As part of a $40 billion investment strategy to upgrade and improve the Postal processing, transportation and delivery networks, the United States Postal Service announced its plan to modernize mail operations at its Missoula Processing and Distribution Center in Missoula,” a statement from the Postal Service said. “The announcement comes following a thorough business review and solicitation of public feedback on the facility’s future. In addition to determining the facility will remain open and modernized as a Local Processing Center, the business case supports transferring mail processing outgoing operations to (Spokane). Currently, a majority of mail and packages are destined outside the Missoula area to the rest of the world.”
