USPS announces selection of next generation MDD

USPS has chosen the Zebra TC 77 model as the new on-street scanning device to replace the current Mobile Delivery Device (MDD).  The new scanner will utilize the same software package and on-street menus as the current MDD. USPS indicates the need for updated hardware to improve network communication. Zebra is the manufacturer of the previous Intelligent Mail Device (IMD) used by letter carriers from 2006 until 2014. Pilot testing of the new MDD is occurring in the Northern Virginia District with nationwide roll-out in the coming months. The current Honeywell MDD devices will be repurposed for use in distribution operations.
