- Full Report:
The Ogden to Salt Lake City, Utah, mail processing consolidation was planned to realize savings by processing Ogden's outgoing mail on Salt Lake City's multiposition letter sorting machines. It was estimated that the Postal Service could save $91,900 in the first year and $160,700 thereafter by this consolidation. It could save an additional $7,500 annually by performing certain manual operations at the Salt Lake City office because that office has higher productivity rates and lower average pay rates than the Ogden office for those operations. The consolidation will have little or no impact on mail service to Ogden. Salt Lake City's multiposition letter sorting machines have adequate capacity to process Ogden's mail, and transportation schedules can be revised to provide for pickup and return of Ogden's mail to insure that it is available for delivery the next day.
