The leader among the 67 districts was Dakotas (98.89 percent), followed by Hawkeye (98.24 percent) and San Francisco (98.11 percent).

The biggest gainer among the districts: No. 62-ranked Los Angeles, which clocked in with a rating of 94.41 percent, an improvement of more than 2 percentage points from the previous week.

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

Award nomination. The Postal Service was nominated last month for a 2020 Licensing International Excellence Award, an annual program that honors companies and organizations that license their logos, brands and other intellectual property for commercial products.

This is the first time USPS has been nominated for a licensing award. The organization was nominated in the newcomer category for its efforts to license the postal logo on apparel and other merchandise.

Winners will be announced later this year.

Great news. The Postal Service recently mailed Great Lakes Area Update’s latest issue to employees in the area.

This edition, which is also available on Blue and LiteBlue, features articles about scanning, employee training programs and more.
