Kōrero: Mail and couriers

Mail-sorting machine (4 o 4)

Mail-sorting machine

Around 32,000 letters and other mail items are handled by this bar code sorter every minute, part of New Zealand Post’s automated delivery system. Before reaching this machine, mail is processed by a bar-coding machine that reads the addresses, including handwritten addresses, and prints a bar code on the envelope. This bar code sorter then reads that code and directs the mail to the right point for delivery.
