Wiring USPS Automation

American Electric of Jacksonville was commercially contracted at Jacksonville, Florida’s USPS hub facility.  The rail track motors which move the packages inside of mail carrier carts and automated gate switches which sort the packages, both needed to be replaced. The contract included the installation and wiring of these motors.  Tracks and gates run throughout the building using automation which require precise electrical work for USPS to continue their reputation of “logistics.”

The USPS logistics are not only included in the tracks and switches that move the packages but is highly emphasized in the work ethics of their employees and the contractors acquired to maintain the machines and equipment.  Under strict protocol the work needed to be completed professionally in a timely manner.

Tracks that run throughout the building also run under the flooring.  This required panels to be removed and the electricians to crawl into the tracks to complete the motor installation.

Automated switches were also wired to the automated system that functions seamlessly with carts moving on the track, scanners and gates.  These switches complete the sorting from the received packages loaded off the trucks, through facility as they are sorted then back to the loading dock for delivery.

The definition of logistics, according to Webster Dictionary is, “the things that must be done to plan and organize a complicated activity or event that involves many people”.  The electricians at American Electric, including Wesley, DJ, Mike and Thomas, have been trained to use these same principles in their trade and throughout our company.
