Capital Metro Area FSS Report Cast Doubt on Entire Program
7.27.2018 - PostalMag.com reports: "It is unclear whether processing flats on FSS is actually more cost-efficient than using AFSM. The Postal Service does not have any current studies or analyses to establish the financial benefit or workhour savings achieved when flats mail is processed on the FSS instead of the AFSM. Processing flats mail on AFSM machines and having the carriers manually sequence the flats may be less expensive than processing flats using FSS machines." - Comments (Count)
