Completing PS Form 8125 Correctly Eliminates Potential Delays

 

Irregularities in drop ship forms can potentially delay mail acceptance, disrupting mailers’ production and distribution schedules.

 

When depositing mail at a USPS® destination entry facility, here are some important reminders for completing PS Form 8125, Plant-Verified Drop Shipment (PVDS) Verification and Clearance.

 

First, make sure that all mailer information on an original (not photocopied) PS Form 8125 is accurately completed.

 

This information includes completed sections for: Class of Mail, Mail Processing Category, Number of Pallets, and Entry Discounts Claimed; plus, Entry Office in the Destination Entry Post Office section.

 

Also, when the PVDS mailing arrives at the destination entry facility, either the Drop Shipment Appointment Number or the FAST® Scheduler ID must also be completed.

 

For additional information, visit RIBBS®>Business Mail Acceptance>Drop Ship Checklist for Mailers or see Publication 804, Drop Shipment Procedures for Destination Entry.
