Scanning snapshot

Scanning snapshot. The Postal Service’s national scanning rating was 97.8 percent during the week ending March 22, up from one week earlier.

The top three areas were Western (98.05 percent), Eastern (97.98 percent) and Pacific (97.76 percent). The top three districts were Dakotas (99.21 percent), Central Plains (98.5 percent) and Western Pennsylvania (98.47 percent).

Scanning allows customers to track their packages and mail, and it helps USPS improve efficiency and network management.

To see the latest results, go to the Informed Visibility site and select “Customer Experience,” followed by “DES 2 Scan Performance.”

If you’re using Informed Delivery to keep an eye out for your tax refund — or if you know someone else who is doing this — the team would like to hear from you.
