Scanning snapshot. The Postal Service’s scanning snapshot for the week ending Feb. 7 doesn’t look much different from the snapshot from one week earlier.

The national score was 97.76 percent, down slightly from 97.79 percent.

Western (98.02 percent) led the areas and Dakotas (99.09 percent) topped the districts, just as they did during the week ending Jan. 31, although both jurisdictions were down slightly.

No area improved its score last week, although some of the 67 districts did, including San Diego (98.04 percent), which moved into 23rd place, up from 44th one week earlier, and Baltimore (97.79 percent), which reached the 36th spot, up from 57th.

Scanning data allows customers to track their mail and packages, which helps USPS deliver excellent service, boost loyalty and drive revenue.

Presidents Day. The Postal Service is providing managers, supervisors and others with general operating policy and planning guidance for Presidents Day, also known as Washington’s Birthday, a federal holiday that will be observed Monday, Feb. 17.

A new memo, available on Blue, explains guidelines for delivery, retail, processing, international service, maintenance and logistics operations.
