Modernizing Elevators — Going Up? Or Down?

Like just about everything else, elevators age and break down. Just ask the U.S. Postal Service, which operates about 1,200 elevators — used to move mail as well as people — at more than 500 facilities nationwide. A little more than five years ago, the Postal Service established the Elevator Modernization Program (EMP) to improve reliability for mail processing operations and ensure industry standards are maintained. Since early 2016, the EMP has modernized 121 elevators at 53 facilities to the tune of about $146 million.
