The chart in table 1-2 shows the geographical areas and ships served by each JMPA and their elements. AIRPORT MAIL FACILITY/CENTER An  airport  mail  facility/center  (AMF/AMC)  is  a facility that is manned and operated by the USPS at specific  airports  located  in  the  continental  United States.  Mail for all branches of the U.S. Armed Forces that is addressed with an APO/FPO is concentrated at these points for sorting and onward delivery.  The mail is  dispatched  and  transported  following  instructions issued by the JMPAs. BULK MAIL CENTERS There   are   2l   bulk   mail   centers   (BMCs) strategically  located  throughout  the  United  States. These  USPS  mail  processing  centers  comprise  a nationwide system for the concentration, distribution, and transportation of Periodical, Standard Mail A, and Standard Mail B mail.   Postage rates will be further discussed in chapter 4. Of the 2l BMCs we will only be concerned with the ones that serve the three gateways. Table l-3 shows the gateways and the serving BMCs. MILITARY POST OFFICES Military post offices (MPOs) are established on ships and at overseas activities and are branches of the USPS.  Post offices that are located at shore activities in  U.S.  territories,  possessions,  and  in  the  United States may be branches of a local civil post office. A post office operated by the Navy may also act as a  center  for  the  concentration,  consolidation,  and 1-6 JMPA AREAS SERVED New York, NY Ships home-ported on the East Coast in the mid-Atlantic and northern states.
