The U.S. Postal Service is considering consolidating its processing centers in a cost cutting move. So they are conducting feasibility studies all over the country, including here in Bend. They want to look at the cost savings of consolidating Bend's processing and distribution center with Portland’s. Ron Anderson is the Postal Services spokesman in Portland: “What we're looking at doing because we have more capacity, not just in Oregon, but nationally. This consolidation would save up to three billion dollars for the postal service.” Currently there are 500 postal processing centers in the U.S. and the postal service is looking at reducing to 200 centers. The feasibility study should be completed by early 2012.
