New Markings for Parcel Select 

 

An advance copy of the Federal Register notice announcing new marking requirements for Parcel Select packages is available on Postal Explorer at pe.usps.com. Beginning October 9, Parcel Select shippers must use one of the following markings:


“Parcel Select” on all destination entry packages.
“Parcel Select BMC Presort” or “Parcel Select BMC PRSRT” on BMC presort entry packages.
“Parcel Select OBMC Presort” or “Parcel Select OBMC PRSRT” on OBMC presort entry (Inter-BMC) packages.
“Parcel Select Barcoded” or “Parcel Select BC” on barcoded Intra- and Inter-BMC packages.

 

We will publish these changes in the Domestic Mail Manual on October 9.
