USPS hiring 500 in New Jersey, improving equipment for nationwide holiday rush

The postal service is hoping that the introduction of nearly 250 new sorting machines, and thousands of new employees, will improve delivery times this holiday season.
Officials say in New Jersey there will be three new package sorting machines called Single Induction Package Sorters (SIPS) that can process significantly more packages.
That's just one of three types of new machines that have been installed since the USPS Delivering for America plan began in 2021.
In total, there should be 249 new machines nationwide by the holidays.
