This report presents the results of our self-initiated audit of the efficiency of operations at the Seattle Processing and Distribution Center (P&DC) in Seattle, WA (Project Number 22-094). We conducted this audit to provide U.S. Postal Service management with timely information on operational risks at this P&DC. We judgmentally selected the Seattle P&DC based on overtime, penalty overtime, clearance times, and late and extra trips by Postal Vehicle Service (PVS) and Highway Contract Route drivers. The Seattle P&DC is in the Pacific Northwest Division of the Logistics and Processing Operations Western Region and processes letters, flats, and parcels. The Seattle P&DC services multiple 3-digit ZIP Codes in urban and rural communities.
