As part of Delivering for America™, the 10-year Postal Service™ plan to modernize the nation’s aging postal network, a Mail Processing Facility Review (MPFR) was initiated to evaluate moving some of the mail processing operations from the Eugene OR Processing and Distribution Center (P&DC) to the new Portland OR Regional Processing and Distribution Center (RPDC). The initial results of the analysis support the business case for transferring some mail processing operations to the Portland RPDC and repositioning the Eugene facility as a Local Processing Center (LPC). This MPFR, currently in review at United States Postal Service® Headquarters and its Regional Office, is subject to change.


A public meeting will be held to share the initial results of the study, to discuss any written comments submitted by the public thus far, and to allow members of the community to provide additional oral feedback. The public’s input will be considered prior to a final decision. The meeting will be held on Tuesday, August 8, 3-5pm, at the Holiday Inn Express: Eugene/Springfield, 919 Kruse Way, Springfield OR 97477. A summary of the MPFR will be posted on usps.com on August 1, 2023, one week prior to public input meeting. Below are some preliminary highlights from the study:


Business Case:

The Postal Service is investing heavily in its Oregon operations as it moves to modernize the nation’s aging and outmoded postal network and to achieve the organization’s goal of 95% on-time delivery across all mail products. As part of its 10-year strategic plan, Delivering for America, USPS is currently building a new, state-of-the-art RPDC in Portland — one of the first facilities of its kind in the nation.


The initial results of the facility review support the business case for keeping the Eugene facility open and modernizing the facility as a Local Processing Center (LPC) with simplified processes and standardized layouts. The Eugene LPC will be a critical node in connecting mail to the new Portland RPDC. Additionally, the business case supports transferring some mail processing operations to the Portland RPDC.


Facility Future:

The Eugene facility will remain open and will be modernized. It will be repositioned as a Local Processing Center for performing Destinating mail processing.


Local Customer Considerations:

  • Retail and other services currently available at the Eugene facility will not
  • Business mail acceptance will remain the
  • A local postmark will continue to be available at retail post
  • Delivery times of mail to residences and businesses should not change because of the


Commercial Mailers:

  • Mailers who presort mail will continue to receive appropriate postage
  • Mailers who drop ship to Destination Sectional Center Facility (DSCF) can expect no changes if the MPFOR is approved.
