USPS tests outsourcing parcel sortation to UPS

ups_logo21st Century Postal Worker reports that the Carol Stream and South Suburban processing plants in Illinois, along with the Chicago NDC, have begun a six month test of sending non-machinable parcels (NMOs) to a United Parcel Service facility to be sorted. Under the plan, USPS employees tag the parcels as they arrive from collections, and then ship them to the UPS facility in Willow Springs IL, which will sort them and send them on to their destinations.

Incoming NMOs will also be sorted by UPS, with larger offices in the 601 ZIP area receiving their NMO parcels directly from the UPS plant.
