New Customer Support Ruling for Mailers Preparing Pallets


We issued new Customer Support Ruling (CSR) PS-327, “Preparing and Labeling Low Volume Pallets.” This CSR allows mailers to use low-volume pallets when a barcoded label is applied for efficient mail tracking.


New CSR PS-327, and all CSRs, are available on Postal Explorer at (click “Customer Support Rulings” on the homepage). CSRs help Postal Service employees and customers use our mailing standards by providing examples of specific mailpieces and an analysis of how the standards are applied. CSRs cover many topics and can be easily searched and sorted on Postal Explorer.
