DMM Advisory – March DMM Changes

without comments

Officially posted to the DMM(Domestic Mail Manual) 708.6.6.2 and 708.6.6.5 details the 8 x 11 pallet placard option for Intelligent Mail container barcodes.  Until November, mailers may affix these placards beneath the shrink wrap.  This was a key concession made by the USPS in working with mailers who are transitioning to Intelligent Mail, and we are grateful for their responsiveness on this issue.

Also in this advisory are updates regarding Express Mail and Priority Mail reshipment service, Detached Address Label requirement changes, and Labeling List changes.  Next DMM update will be April 6.
