Postea, a leading technology provider for the logistics, postal and mailing industry, recently announced that the United States Postal Service has started a pilot program for its 3D imaging software.
The pilot program will be for six months for post offices in the Washington, D.C., area. According to Postea, the image processing and 3D sensor technologies in its QubeVu system captures the barcodes, dimensions and addresses of shipment data.
Additionally, the imaging software helps address a need for border and customs protection, while still preserving revenue and compliance, the company stated.
“Recent security regulations require postal clerks to manually enter all data from a customs form which considerably slows down transaction times,” said Postea in a press release. ” QubeVu’s 3D imaging software, along with industry-standard handwriting recognition software, will be able to extract the information from the customs form automatically.”
Postea is relatively new to the postal industry. The company was founded in 2007 and uses open-source technologies to help establish a connection between the physical and digital worlds, according to its website.
