Mail processing operations close down in several Kentucky cities

Posted: Updated:

LOUISVILLE, KY. (WDRB) -- The U.S. Postal Service is closing down mail processing operations in several Kentucky cities, but in many cases, those losses are Louisville's gain.

The moves come after studies of its mail processing operations begun five months ago.  Operations at the processing and distribution facilities in Campton, Elizabethtown, and Lexington are moving to Louisville.  Some of the Lexington operations are also moving to Knoxville, Tenn.

The changes affect only mail processing, and not retail, business mail entry, or vehicle maintenance facilities at those sites.

The Postal Service, in studying its Louisville operation, said it didn't see a "significant opportunity" to improve efficiency there, and won't make any changes.

The service has seen a 25 percent decline in first-class mail in the past six years.  It emphasizes that no tax dollars support it, and it makes money on selling postage and postal products and services.

Here's the full list from the U.S. Postal Service:

  • Bowling Green KY Processing and Distribution Facility (P&DF) to the Nashville TN Processing and Distribution Center (P&DC).
  • Campton KY Customer Service Mail Processing Center (CSMPC) to the Louisville KY P&DC.
  • Elizabethtown KY CSMPC to the Louisville P&DC.
  • Hazard KY CSMPC to the Knoxville TN P&DC.
  • Lexington KY P&DC to the Louisville P&DC and the Knoxville P&DC.
  • London KY P&DF to the Knoxville P&DC.
  • Paducah KY P&DF to the Evansville IN P&DF.
  • Somerset KY CSMPC to the Knoxville P&DC.
