Toshiba to provide mail-sorting system to Sweden post.

TOKYO, Aug. 4 Kyodo

Toshiba Corp. said Monday it has won a contract worth $12 million to provide the Swedish postal services with advanced mail-sorting equipment.

In June 2004, the Japanese electronics maker will start delivering eight units of its Series TT-1000 systems, each equipped with an optical character reader and video coding system, Toshiba said in a press release.

The mail-sorting systems scan mail and recognize handwritten or printed addresses, print appropriate barcodes onto envelopes and use the information in the bar codes to sort mail into stackers on the basis of destination.

Each unit can handle up to 36,000 items of mail an hour, the company said.
