USPS using new package sorting equipment to help meet expected surge over holidays
WORCESTER, Mass. – For the United States Postal Service, it’s never to early to start preparing for the holiday season.
USPS is hoping to speed up delivery this year with 118 new package sorting machines. Worcester’s machine started running in April and Postmaster Dan O’Neill says it will help them keep up evolving mailing and shipping needs.
“This machine is 12 times faster than what we were doing before,” O’Neill said. “So it’s all part of a 10-year plan for the Post Office, sustainability and everything else, modernizing our equipment so we are better able to provide more predictable and reliable service to our customers.”
