Updated USPS Network Optimization Information

without comments

From the USPS earlier today:

New and updated network optimization information for mailers is now available on the Postal Service’s “Information for Mailers” web page.

A second set of FAQs specifically for mailers, and a new document containing more information related to each of the facility study sites announced September 15, 2011, were recently posted on the Postal Service’s “Information for Mailers” web page at In addition, navigation to this page from the home page was simplified — now, just click on the “Mailer information” link under the heading “Our Organization” (next to the photo of a postal facility) and you’re there! This new and updated information is also available on the Business Mail Acceptance (BMA) page of RIBBS.

The new set of FAQs contains 49 *new* questions-and-answers based upon ongoing meetings and discussions with mailers; these FAQs supplement the initial set of FAQs posted in September. The new “Consolidated Information on Facility Study Sites” document contains additional information on all 252 sites selected for Area Mail Processing studies. Mailers can use this list to find each selected study site’s name, city, state, ZIP Code, and drop site key; the gaining site’s (or sites’) name(s), city, state, ZIP Code and drop site key; the road mileage figure reflecting the distance between study and gaining sites, and, in some cases, additional comments on individual sites.

We hope you will find these new materials helpful and informative. As always, please contact us if you have questions, comments or concerns, and let us know if there is specific information you would like to see posted on the “Information for Mailers” page.
