And inefficient? I work with USPS and DHL every week for logistical things for my company, USPS is very easy to work with from a b2b view.
The USPS is extremely bloated and inefficient. My ex is a mail carrier for them. It's extremely common for the carriers to finish their assigned routes and then sluff off the rest of the day before returning to the postal facility. My ex would come home, take a shower, change, hang out a bit, and then return to the postal facility. They do that to not encourage the routes to get bigger, IE have more work to do. SMH.

As a customer, I have no complaints. As a vendor... they're absolutely awful. I can not understate this. They cost themselves a lot of money due to how they operate and cause vendors to turn down business because they don't want to work with them.

What do you guys think of the Post Office moving to North Ridge? I saw this idea and thought it was great.

Size works. Access that they need...not so much. If they relocated it'd be near the airport.

I think the airport area makes the most sense. Right at air, rail and freeways.

The Post Office still owns a couple acres of land by the airport in Oak Creek where they were going to move before the Recession.

I realize you meant the recent recession, but when I first read it I thought we were talking about the Great Depression! I thought, "Ho, boy, they've been holding that land a long time."

Setback requirements for the hotel, which must use high quality design materials and architecture, are designed to narrow the building to maximize light, air, and open space and minimize shadows on Pier A Park. The implementation of the plan would terminate the existing easement with the Post Office which provides angled parking for Post Office vehicles along Newark Street where there currently is no sidewalk. All Post Office and hotel loading activities would be moved to First Street and take place inside of a building and the hotel would be required to have lease agreements with private parking garages.

Now all USPS employees can make use of liteblue portal to get all the benifits.

It appears you meant to post to a New Jersey forum, this is for Milwaukee.

This is interesting. I dropped off some bulk mail at the Post Office yesterday at the rear of the facility by the river and there was quite a bit of construction going on.

There has a been a new report filed with the DNR stating that the Postal Service is preparing for construction at the Oak Creek site. They need approval from DNR to build because the site is on a wetland.

No official statement has been made from either side.
