Postal Service carriers are getting new mobile hand-held electronic devices to track packages and communicate with their local offices. The mobile delivery device (MDD) collects and transmits transactional data for packages at the Post Office and as packages are out for delivery. It operates over wireless carrier networks and the Postal Service’s internal network. The MDD, built by Honeywell, is a major piece of a larger Postal Service plan to support the kind of multiple-event, end-to-end tracking used by commercial shippers.
We will review and evaluate the functionality of the MDD and the plan to deploy it. We would like to have feedback from our clerks and carriers who use MDDs every day.
What is your impression of the new MDD?
How does the device compare to other portable computing devices in the market?
