Scanning scores

Scanning snapshot. The Postal Service’s national scanning rating was 97.77 percent during the week ending March 31, up from one week earlier.

Dakotas (99.03 percent) topped the districts, while Western (97.99 percent) led the areas.

Scanning allows customers to track their packages and mail. It also helps the Postal Service improve efficiency and network management.

Scores and standings change continually. To see the latest results, go to the Enterprise Analytics site and select “Scanning” on the left hand side, and then “DES 2 — Scan Performance” from the drop-down options.

Women’s History Month. Employees can now watch a recording of the Postal Service’s recent Women’s History Month panel discussion.

A video of the event, which featured remarks from PMG Megan J. Brennan and others, was posted to Blue this week.
