ALG Connect:Updates to Dropship Keys for Regional Processing Distribution Centers (RPDC)

April 18,2024


Updates to Dropship Keys for

Regional Processing Distribution Centers (RPDC)

As part of the Postal Service’s 10-year Delivering for the America plan to invest in the postal network we will be updating the Dropship Keys at the Regional Processing Distribution Centers (RPDC).


Effective in the June published Mail Direction Files the Dropship Keys will be updated from E to K.  The purpose of this update is to identify RPDC’s. The original 6 - digit locale key for each of these sites will stay the same.


All future RPDC’s will use this naming convention.

If you have any questions or concerns, please contact the FAST Help Desk at or by telephone at 877-569-6614 (Option 3).
