Changes to Destination Entry Periodicals Critical Entry Times

 

Recently, Periodicals mailers were notified through various channels that national, standardized Critical Entry Times (CET) have been established for destination entry Periodicals mail to provide better service to mailers and to maximize operational efficiency. The four new CETs range from 8 a.m. for mail to Flats Sequencing System (FSS) zones requiring a bundle sort to 5 p.m. for non-FSS zones when no bundle sort is required, and are effective July 1, 2011.

 

Details and additional CET information can be found at RIBBS®>Business Mail Acceptance. A job aid for creating FAST® appointments for mixed Periodicals is available at RIBBS>FAST under “Important Links.” A current list of FSS zones is available in labeling list L006 on Postal Explorer® under Additional Links>Labeling Lists.
