Scanning snapshot. The Postal Service’s national scanning rating was 97.75 percent during the week ending Sept. 20, down from one week earlier.
Western (97.92 percent) led the areas, while Dakotas (99.08 percent) topped the districts.
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.” Employees must request access to Informed Visibility through eAccess.
Service update. Parts of southeast Texas remain flooded after Tropical Storm Imelda dropped massive amounts of rain in the region last week.
The usps.com Service Alerts section has the latest information on postal operations.
Into the sunset. The Postal Service has sent its RIBBS industry website into the sunset.
The tools previously accessed from RIBBS — including service standard maps and a lookup feature for business mail entry locations — are now available on the Postal Pro site.
The tools should no longer be accessed from RIBBS because they may not contain up-to-date information.
