    a sort facility is like a warehouse where the packages are sorted into different groups for shipping to individual locations. USPS means United States Postal Service. Origin means the place where the package starts out. So, USPS Origin Sorting Facility means the Post office's sorting facility in the city where the package has been sent from

    processed means that it has passed through the facility and been sent on to somewhere else, usually the destination facility. since it hasn't been noted as received at the destination facility, you should presume it is en route, on its way.

      You are incorrect. I mailed mine out from my own city, and it arrived in a "USPS origin sort facility" in Chicago, that's hundreds of miles from where I live, and it's going to Norway. So it is neither my orignal post office, or the recipiants post office.

    It doesn't mean much because I'm looking now at a particular package that has been "Processed at USPS Origin Sort Facility" at two different cities so far.

    According to the USPS.com website, an origin facility a.k.a. entry facility can be classified in a few different ways:

    entry facility—The USPS mail processing facility (e.g., NDC, SCF) that serves the Post Office at which the mail is entered by the mailer. Also called origin facility.

    entry NDC—A network distibution center (NDC), including its satellite auxiliary service facility (ASF) unless specified otherwise, at which mail is entered by the mailer.

    auxiliary service facility (ASF)—A mail processing facility, that has its own service area and serves as a satellite processing hub for a particular network distribution center (NDC).

    sectional center facility (SCF)—A postal facility that serves as the processing and distribution center (P&DC) for Post Offices in a designated geographic area as defined by the first three digits of the ZIP Codes of those offices. Some SCFs serve more than one 3-digit ZIP Code range.

    So if your mail is being processed through multiple origin facilities, it may be going through NDC, ASF and SCF facilties, which may not be at the site where the package was originally sent from but should share a regional origin.

    Really, it means illegal drugs LMFAO boy, are you misinforme! If that was the I need to call a lawyer ASAP cuz my daughters special diaper rash cream got processed twice! Shaking in my boots here people!

    Anyhow, Im sorry but I had to say something, I can't stand ignorant people who think they know everything, and are sooooo far from the truth. Scarring people like that, shame on you.

    I know this question is a couple years old, but there are still many, many people who look to these older questions for help. As others have said, all it means is the packages go to a special usps facility to be sorted, then placed out enroute to you. Packages can pass through not one, or even two, but sometimes up to the our for different S.F. It just all depends on how far the sender is via the buyer. The origin has nothing to do with anything, for within all my years of sending/recieving packages, I have never seen a package sorted in the " city of origin ". Hope this helped any future USPS customers
