Bill of Lading/8125 update

with one comment

Progress was made today in a joint meeting of USPS and industry representatives, with NASML being represented by Rose Flanagan. The meeting was attended by USPS senior personnel, USPS council, USPS SOX requirement reps, USPS Six Sigma reps and USPS Network personnel, as well as mailing Industry participants. Groups were able to discuss issues raised by the implementation of the USPS not recognizing and signing Bills of Lading. This communication session helped facilitate a greater understanding of the impact of the new policy.

Official word will be forthcoming shortly, which will detail an amicable solution that will be acceptable to both industry and USPS, addressing all concerns. Watch for more info here to come, will post an update here.

Talking, and more importantly, listening, almost always results in success.  Both sides were able to do so today.
