1.06.2019 - Dead Tree Edition reports: "For the third year in a row, productivity of the U.S. Postal Service's Flats Sequencing System declined in 2018 - with no end in sight to the money-losing machines' troubles.

Leakage - the proportion of mail that was supposed to be run on FSS machines but wasn't - rose from 20.1% to 21.9%." - Comments (Count)
