FAST Appointments for Mixed Periodicals Drop Shipments

 

Periodicals mailers can now schedule their Facilities Access and Shipment Tracking (FAST)) Mixed Periodicals appointments (Periodicals mixed with Standard and/or Package Services mail) as if they were scheduling a 100 percent Periodicals appointment, anytime a facility is open and staffed. 

 

In a future release, FAST will be enhanced to allow the scheduling of Mixed Periodicals appointments within a facility's hours of operation. In the meantime, mailers should follow the workaround outlined in the Creating FAST Appointments for Mixed Periodicals job aid on RIBBS to ensure that their Mixed Periodicals appointments are created correctly.
