This report presents the results of our audit of efficiency of operations at the Philadelphia Processing and Distribution Center (P&DC) in Philadelphia, PA. We conducted this audit to provide U.S. Postal Service management with timely information on operational risks at this P&DC. We selected the Philadelphia P&DC based on a Congressional request from Senator Robert P. Casey Jr. and Representative Dwight Evans. The Philadelphia P&DC is in the Chesapeake Division; and processes letters, flats, and parcels; and services multiple 3-digit ZIP Codes in urban and rural communities.
