Keeping Letter and Flat Trays in Circulation

From the DMM Advisory

Keeping Letter and Flat Trays in Circulation

The fall and Holiday mailing seasons are getting into full swing. Letter and flat trays allow us to handle your mail efficiently in our processing facilities; however, we are facing a potential shortage of the MM letter trays.

We have tried to avoid this situation by asking mailers to conduct ongoing mail transport equipment (MTE) audits to locate forgotten, misused, or excessive MTE. As a rule of thumb, you should maintain no more than a 7-day supply of MTE.

When MTE overstocking occurs, other customers are prevented from completing their mailings. So please, don’t hang onto excess MTE. Make sure to return it to your Post Office, processing facility, or BMEU.

Until we have recovered excess MTE, keep in mind that you may use EMM trays (EIRS 74E) as an authorized substitute when MM letter trays are unavailable.

More Business Customer Gateway Information

without comments

From the USPS, a very good communication regarding the Business Customer Gateway Agreement, with resources…

The USPS® has revised the online agreement which describes the terms and conditions for the use of USPS computing systems and Business Customer Gateway online services. Beginning November 1, 2010, Business Services Administrators (BSAs) are encouraged to accept the new agreement in order to maintain uninterrupted access to Business Customer Gateway services.

To assign your BSA responsibilities to another user, click the Manage User Access link from you Business Customer Gateway homepage and select a user from your user base. If you are experiencing problems or wish to deactivate your account, contact the PostalOne! Help Desk at 800-522-9085.

If the registered BSA has left your company and you were routed this notification, we recommend verifying that the former BSA assignment has been revoked through the PostalOne! Help Desk at 800-522-9085. Be prepared to answer questions for security reasons. A new BSA can then assume the role by accepting the current online agreement.

Please be prepared to answer the following questions when contacting the Help Desk:

1) CRID(s) of former BSA
2) ZIP Code of former BSA
3) Company Name
4) Name of former BSA (first and last name)
5) Date BSA left
6) Name of the Business Customer Gateway online service
7) Listing of all CRID(s) associated to the company

For more details and to preview the revised agreement, go to http://ribbs.usps.gov/intelligentmail_gateway/documents/tech_guides/BSAAgreement.pdf.

For inquiries, send email to IMb@usps.gov, include BSA Reacceptance in the subject line.
