Express Mail Open and Distribute and Priority Mail Open and Distribute Changes and Updates

 

On January 29, 2010, we published a Federal Register proposed rule to revise standards to reflect changes and updates for Express MailŪ Open and Distribute and Priority MailŪ Open and Distribute to improve efficiencies in processing and to control costs by eliminating Label 23.

 

We also propose to discontinue the optional use of facsimile Tag 190, Priority Mail Open and Distribute-Destination Delivery Unit. Customers would be required to use the USPS-supplied Tag 190, which is pink and easy to identify. This change will help to ensure accurate and efficient processing of Open and Distribute containers.


We encourage mailers to comment no later than March 1, 2010. For more details, go to Postal Explorer at pe.usps.com, and click on Federal Registers Notices in the left frame.
