Official Word – USPS will Begin Signing Bills of Lading Again

without comments

The Postal Service is revising Mailing Standards of the United States Postal Service, Domestic Mail Manual (DMM®) 705.15. 2.14 to clarify that PS Form 8125, Plant-Verified Drop Shipment (PVDS) Verification and Clearance, is the sole source of evidence for USPS® purposes of the transfer of the custody of pieces entered as a mailing at the time of induction; to clarify that Postal employees may, upon request, sign additional nonpostal documents when presented by transportation providers; and to require segregation of documentation presented at the time of induction.

This is a great example of a successful outcome when both the USPS and the Industry listen to each other with an open mind.  Kudos to all of the mailing associations, including NASML, the USPS, and to all of the MTAC leadership that helped to get this accomplished!
