USPS opts for Lockheed Martin’s EPPS

The US Postal Service (USPS) has selected Lockheed Martin to provide package processing systems.

In a statement sent to Post&Parcel today (7 November), Lockheed Martin said that the Indefinite Delivery Indefinite Quantity (IDIQ) contract, with a maximum potential value of $215 million, will provide up to 10 Enhanced Package Processing Systems (EPPS).

The EPPS will be capable of automatically separating mail pieces, reading printed and handwritten addresses, and sorting packages, priority and bundled mail, such as magazines and catalogues. The technology can process up to 25,000 packages an hour to over 400 unique destinations.

The first EPPS will be deployed to the USPS Processing and Distribution Center currently being built in Portland, Oregon. The system is scheduled to be fully tested, accepted and on-line in October next year to support the 2018 peak mailing season.

“An increasing number of consumers and businesses entrust the USPS to deliver packages and we are proud to provide an effective and reliable system to enable them to meet their growing needs,” said David Shivy, program manager of Lockheed Martin Distribution Technologies.
