The impact of the proposed transfer of the Toms River Mail Processing Center to the new sectional facility under construction in Hamilton Township, New Jersey, was studied. The decision analysis estimated that the consolidation would provide operational savings of $1,586,000 over a 10 year period.
It appears that personnel and transportation savings will exceed the original estimate. Eighty-five full-time positions can be eliminated at Toms River, while 70 persons will be needed at Hamilton Township. This reduction of 15 positions will result in annual personnel savings of $256,200. Transportation savings will exceed $100,000, since more routes than originally considered can be eliminated. There are no specific plans for use of the vacated space, but some of the excess equipment will be relocated to other offices. The consolidation will have a favorable impact on the quality of mail service by increasing the number of overnight delivery areas and improving worldwide service. It is difficult to accurately assess the impact of the consolidation on employees.
