USPS May Consolidate Oxnard, Santa Clarita Distribution Centers

Change could improve efficiency, lower costs

Santa Clarita’s mail distribution center might be taking on operations and mail volume from the Oxnard facility, pending the results of an Area Mail Processing (AMP) study, according to Postal Service Spokesperson Richard Maher.

The flagging economy and the rise of electronic communication have led to dramatic reductions in the number of letters and packages being mailed. In response, the United States Postal Service is considering downsizing many of its facilities.

“We are taking a look at the capacity and the transportation and see if it makes sense to consolidate some of the operations from that facility into Santa Clarita,” says Maher, Public Information Officer for the Postal Service in Southern California.

Over the past year, mail volume has dropped 14 percent, meaning billions of dollars in lost revenue for the Postal Service.

Because the mail is processed at night and transportation arrangements exist between the two distribution centers, Maher expects outgoing mail could be brought to Santa Clarita for processing with little to no change from the current configuration. The Oxnard facility’s fate will not be decided until the study is completed, when a public meeting will be held to announce the results.

Representatives of the Channel Islands Area Local for the American Postal Workers Union plan to deliver a petition to Senator Diane Feinstein asking for her help in reversing a decision to consolidate. At least 750 signatures have been gathered so far.

The USPS is funded almost entirely by revenue generated from postal customers, receiving aid from the federal government only in compensation for foregone revenue for free or reduced rate mail, such as is provided to overseas voters, among others. Congress provides no funds for either
general operations or capital investments.
