You have not read my previous posts?

- Reduce the concurrency of lmtp to a low number (2 - 4) because for delivering
to one Storage it gains you nothing to use high concurrency.

- Don´t use the "local" transport from postfix because with this you get one
recipient per mail deliver. Use transport maps and virtual maps for aliase
expansion to get multiple recipients per mail.
