This research work presents an optimization-based model which deals with integrated logistics operational problem faced by the postal service in Ekpoma. The study employed both primary and secondary sources of data for analysis. A linear programming model was used to analyze the data collected and Mat lab optimization tool was also used optimizing the logistic channel in the post office. The result showed that due to the geographical location and some other constraints, such as the long distance between the post office warehouse and suppliers resulting in longer transit time, high logistic cost and Unequitable distribution of available transportation facilities are some of the methods recommended for the smooth operation in the post office.
