February DMM Update
Postal Explorer (pe.usps.com) always provides the most up-to-date version of the DMM. It’s fully searchable and easy to navigate using the fly-out menus, cross-reference links, and subject index. Today we updated our mailing standards to capture the following changes:
Polywrap Standards for Automation-Rate Flat-Size Mail
Express Mail Open and Distribute and Priority Mail Open and Distribute
on Reusable Envelopes
First-Class Mail Automation Flats
Our next DMM update is scheduled for February 15 to capture recent changes to the labeling lists.
Pricing Proposal Update
Plant-Verified Drop Shipment Procedure for New Rates
We’ve been asked about our rate implementation plant-verified drop shipment (PVDS) procedures. The procedures are the same as those used in the past, and are as follows:
PVDS mailings verified and paid for before the implementation date, using the current rates, will be accepted at destination entry postal facilities up to 15 days after the implementation date, when presented with appropriate verification and payment documentation.
PVDS mailings may be verified and paid for beginning 30 days prior to the implementation of the new rates, using the new rates, provided the shipments are not deposited at destination entry postal facilities until the implementation date of the new rates, or later, when presented with appropriate verification and payment documentation.
