One of the best parts of my job is that it gives me an excuse to go inside buildings that we drive past every day, and see what’s going on. I went to the US Postal Service sorting center in Manchester, next to the airport, to look at a new package sorting machine that is about the size of 10 school buses end-to-end and was impressed by the level of automation needed to handle a gazillion pieces of mail 365/24.
You can read the piece here. If nothing else, you’ll learn what “walking order” means. And be impressed that I didn’t use the “neither rain nor snow …” line.
