January 22 Mailing Services and Shipping Services Price Change Update Plant-Verified Drop Shipment

 

As a reminder, Mailing Services and Shipping Services prices will change on January 22, 2012. Relative to that change, plant-verified drop shipment (PVDS) mailings will be verified and accepted as follows:

 

Current Prices PVDS mailings verified and paid for before January 22, 2012, using the current prices, will be accepted at destination entry postal facilities through February 5, 2012, when presented with appropriate verification and payment documentation.

 

New Prices PVDS mailings may be verified and paid for beginning January 8, 2012, using the new prices, provided the shipments are not deposited at destination entry postal facilities until January 22, 2012, or later, when presented with appropriate verification and payment documentation.

  • For mailings with electronic documentation, mailers must enter a Mail Arrival Date that is on or after January 22, 2012.
  • For mailings with hard copy postage statements, USPS acceptance employees must enter a Mail Arrival Date that is on or after January 22, 2012.

 

There will be a future DMM Advisory on the postage statement exception process.
