Reassignment of ZIP Codes Between NDCs and ASFs

without comments

This is just the beginning of the growing (shrinking?) pains to come….

From the Postal Bulletin 22322

DMM Revision: Reassignment of ZIP Codes Between NDCs and ASFs — Revision to Destination Entry Exhibits
Effective November 7, 2011, the Postal Service™ will revise Mailing Standards of the United States Postal Service, Domestic Mail Manual (DMM ® ) parts 246, 346, 366, 446, 453, and 466 to change the exhibits for destination network distribution center (DNDC) eligibility to reflect the reassignment of certain 3-digit ZIP Code™
ranges.  These revisions for mail addressed to ZIP Code ranges for NDC Des Moines, Iowa,  auxiliary service facility (ASF) Sioux Falls, South Dakota, and ASF Fargo, North Darokta, result from changes to
labeling lists L601 and L602 announced in the October 6, 2011,
Postal Bulletin. An additional change for 3-digit ZIP Code range 864 from ASF Phoenix, AZ 852 to NDC Los Angeles, CA 90901 is to correct a previous oversight; this change will be reflected in an upcoming revision to the labeling lists.
We also correct an error related to reassignment of ZIP Codes between the Memphis, Tennessee, and Dallas, Texas, NDCs, that was part of a DMM revision effective September 6, 2011. That revision included ZIP Code ranges that overlap between the Dallas, Texas, NDC and the Oklahoma City, Oklahoma, ASF. This revision correctly
reinstates DNDC eligibility for mail destined for ASF Oklahoma City, Oklahoma, ZIP Code ranges to be only for mail dropshipped to that ASF.
We encourage mailers to make the related changes to their DNDC mailings immediately. DNDC mailings entered on and after January 28, 2012, must include this change.
