How Effective is the Flats Sequencing System in the Capital Metro Area?

The U.S. Postal Service has 100 Flats Sequencing System (FSS) machines nationwide, with 18 in the Capital Metro Area. FSS machines were designed to sort flat-sized mail, which includes large envelopes, newspapers, catalogs, circulars, and magazines, into delivery point sequence (DPS) to eliminate manual sorting for delivery.
