The Postal Service will maintain a list of Postal Qualified Wholesalers. The list shall be distributed upon request to any person who indicates a need for an international wholesaler. The list shall include all services that the wholesaler provides in addition to collection, sortation, and tendering of international mail.
A wholesaler may state that it has been qualified as a Postal Qualified Wholesaler of the Postal Service. Any use of the Postal Service logo or any Postal Service trademark or advertising material, including letterhead and stationery, stating that the wholesaler has been qualified by the Postal Service must be approved in advance and in writing by the manager of Postal Qualified Wholesalers.
Postal Qualified Wholesalers must give the Postal Service the first opportunity to handle any international mail originating in the United States that it receives from its customers. This includes giving the Postal Service the first opportunity to quote prices for handling mail that is the subject of a formal or informal request for proposals or quotes from a customer. If the services of a wholesaler are needed, the Postal Service may request competitive bids from all Postal Qualified Wholesalers when it quotes prices for handling international mail that is the subject of a formal or informal request for proposals or quotes from a customer.
