The United States Postal Service (USPS) recently published a guide to help mailers plan for some of the upcoming changes and deadlines with regards to various USPS programs. Called the Mail Entry Road Map, this guide breaks down these various USPS programs and provides details on the USPS plans and important deadlines for each.
The United States Postal Service® (USPS®) recently announced they are postponing the implementation of monthly updates to the Labeling Lists and the Mail Direction File from July 1 to August 1, 2014. For the first round of monthly updates, the Labeling Lists affected are L001, L011, L012, and L606. The Labeling Lists are located on the Postal Explorer web site under the Additional Links tab. Mailers are encouraged to use this new data as soon as it is available on August 1, 2014, but are required to use this new data no later than September 1, 2014.
In today’s mailing world, it is more critical than ever for mailers and mail service providers to be able to communicate with the Postal Service™ electronically. While some mailers are encouraged to use the PostalOne!® system, a growing number of mailers are required to use PostalOne! to submit all of their mailing documents electronically (eDoc).
Do you ever wonder how your mailings measure up to all the latest United States Postal Service® (USPS®) requirements? How can you be sure if you are meeting all the requirements or barely meeting the thresholds set by the USPS? Did you know that the USPS will implement financial penalties as early as July 2014 for Full-Service mailings not meeting the requirements?
The 2014 National Postal Forum offered huge learning opportunities for all who attended. The event this year was very educational AND there was lots of excitement in the air. It is very evident that it is best for all involved when the USPS works directly with the Mailing Industry.
The Seamless Acceptance program is already being tested at almost 200 mailing facilities and promises to save mailers and the USPS a lot of time and money. If 90% or more of your mail is Full-Service, you can sign up for "parallel testing” right away. This does not change the way your mail is verified or expose you to any new assessments but it does give you extra visibility into the qualification and accuracy of your mail and the data you provide.
