Audit raises questions about Atlanta mail facility

ATLANTA (AP) -- An audit by the U.S. Postal Service is raising questions about the efficiency of a large Atlanta mail distribution center.

The audit found that truck drivers are not efficiently moving mail through the network distribution center on James Jackson Parkway. Postal officials say the facility is a hub for business mail and is designed to increase efficiency and save money. But the audit found that trucks were sitting idle and not being used efficiently.

WSB-TV obtained the internal audit and reported the results Wednesday.

The audit comes at a time when the postal service is facing intense financial pressure, partly as a result of a nationwide drop in mail volume.

First-class mail volume, which has fallen 25 percent since 2006, is projected to drop another 30 percent by 2016.

"First-class mail volume, which has fallen 25 percent since 2006, is projected to drop another 30 percent by 2016."

That may be so, but all the second-class mail we're being hounded with certainly should make up for it.
