USPS expands Surface Visibility (SV) program

12/30/16 USPS has expanded its Surface Visibility (SV) program to an additional 114 sites, bringing the total number to 437 across the nation.

The program is part of the Postal Service’s broader efforts to better use technology and promote the SV application, which improves scanning and makes it easier for business customers to know the whereabouts of their mail and packages.

To further close visibility gaps, USPS also has expanded SV scanning capability to 65 peak annexes and five contracted sites, providing these locations with more flexible technology that uses the cellular network.

Additionally, the Postal Service has developed SVWeb — a site dedicated to the SV program — to replace TIMESWeb.

SVWeb provides real-time transportation updates on the movement of trailers in the surface network. The data captured is used to identify early, on-time, late or cancelled trips and to evaluate and improve transportation schedules.


Mail Handler Phil Cassano uses a surface visibility device to scan a container label at the Erie, PA, Processing and Distribution Center.

  1. Nothing to see here…just more shuffling of the deck chairs on the Titanic before Trump rips them a new one.

    Stick to attending Stamp Shows Maggie.

  2. Next comes the predator drones. The employee misses a scan, or is running behind a hellfire missile is sure to correct the awful employee! No more PDIS ,letters of warning, or nasty union grievances to deal with. Management is even scanning their donuts. They want to make sure that the stupidvisors get their allotment of goodies.

  3. That must be that new camera they’re putting in the restrooms and the breakrooms. They go in the fluorescent lights and under the toilet rims.
