Start Date: Tuesday, November 8, 2016
Estimated Report Release Date: May 2017
The rapid growth of ecommerce has created many opportunities for the U.S. Postal Service. This holiday season, the Postal Service is planning to deliver about 750 million packages, a 12 percent increase compared to last year. To increase operating efficiency, the Postal Service is deploying a pilot automated package sorter called the High Throughput Package Sorter. We will evaluate the performance and functionality of the pilot equipment.
