The USPS announces plans to consolidate or close an additional 223 mail processing plans, and cut 35K jobs in the process. The agency, which has been struggling to cope with enormous losses stemming from declining mail volumes, currently employs 150K workers at 461 processing plants. Any reduction in service quality that results from the cuts benefits UPS, FDX, and STMP.
