This report presents the results of our self-initiated audit of Efficiency of Operations at the Margaret L. Sellers (MLS) Processing and Distribution Center (P&DC) in San Diego, CA (Project Number 22-061). 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 MLS P&DC based on overtime, penalty overtime, late and extra trips, and low clearance time percentage for package processing. The MLS P&DC is in the Southern California Division; processes letters, flats, and parcels; and services multiple 3-digit ZIP Codes in urban and rural communities (see Table 1).

    Why is my 2 shipping package that was sent out the 18th from California to Mississippi to arrive the 20th at 6pm still at the USPS Regional Origin Facility SAN DIEGO CA DISTRIBUTION CENTER. Also what does being Held for Mailability Determination mean there is not straight answer on the internet besides saying the packet is seized for usually for drug related problems to be investigated by us postal inspection service ?
