Mail Processing, Retail and Delivery Operations use mail transportation equipment (MTE), to sort and deliver mail nationwide on a daily basis.
Our equipment is costly to replace and we spend millions each year. Not all of the replacements are due to normal wear and tear. Tubs and trays regularly find their way into garages, trunks and garages.
In 2009, U.S Postal Inspectors recovered $2.1 million worth of MTE that had either been stolen or was being misused.
If you see large amounts of equipment, you can call the special phone number 866-330-3404 or email firstname.lastname@example.org
With the holidays approaching, we need every piece of equipment in our system.
