L008 3-Digit Scheme—Periodicals, Standard Mail, and BPM Flats in Bundles

[10-4-10] L008 describes the 3-digit scheme sortation list for automation price (see 345.7.0 for Standard Mail, 365.7.0 for Bound Printed Matter, and 707.25.0 for Periodicals) and cobundled automation and Presorted rate (see 705.11.0) Periodicals and Standard Mail flat-size pieces and Presorted rate Bound Printed Matter (BPM) flat-size pieces that meet the automation criteria in 301.3.0. Pieces within scheme bundles are processed in the same operation and therefore are not required to be prepared in individual 3-digit bundles.

When the 3-digit scheme sort is used, mail for the 3-digit ZIP Codes shown in Column A must be combined in bundles for all combinations for which mail exists and density dictates. 3-digit scheme bundles using OELs must include the appropriate OEL under 708.7.0, which must contain only the 3-digit ZIP Code listed in Column B. The city and state are provided as information only.
