Scanning snapshot. The Postal Service’s national scanning rating was 97.7 percent during the week ending May 10, down from one week earlier.

Western (98.06 percent) led the areas, while Dakotas (99.15 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.

Flag reminder. Armed Forces Day, which honors men and women who serve in the U.S. military, is Saturday, May 18.

Facilities that are open this day are required to fly the POW-MIA flag, which honors the sacrifices made by members of the armed forces held as prisoners of war or listed as missing in action.

The POW-MIA flag must fly below the U.S. flag.

Keeping up appearances. The Postal Bulletin’s May 9 edition previews Mailbox Improvement Week, which will be held Sunday, May 19-Saturday, May 25, this year.

Postmasters must notify all rural and highway contract box delivery route customers before the annual campaign begins.
