SPOKANE, Wash. – There are 117 days until Christmas day, which may seem like a long ways away, but with online shopping continuing to grow the United States Postal Service is taking steps in Spokane to help prevent shipping delays.
According to USPS, a new package sorting machine is launching in Spokane on Thursday. The machine here in the Lilac City is just one of 118 new machines installed across the country.
USPS said the machine can process packages up to 12 times faster than manual sorting.
This launch is part of a 10-year plan that includes $40 billion worth of equipment and technology.
