The Postal Service relies on the Automated Package Processing System (APPS) and Automated Parcel and Bundle Sorter (APBS) to sort packages. But it is testing five new Small Package Sorting Systems (SPSS) machines that could provide additional processing support for the growing package volume.
We will evaluate whether the performance, functionality, and deployment of the SPSS meets the Postal Service’s expectations for this technology.
- Have you had any experience with the SPPS machines? If so, what is your impression of the technology?
- How does the SPSS machine compare to other Postal Service package sorting machines?
