PRC denies Newspaper Association’s motion to stay Valassis Negotiated Service Agreement.

Troubling that the fastest action I have ever seen the Postal Regulatory Commission take was on this subject.

…Network consolidation deliberations seem to be going on forever, in comparison.

Making ‘undeliverable’ deliverable

without comments

Last year, the Mail Recovery Center (MRC) in Atlanta, GA — the Postal Service’s “last opportunity” to deliver or return valuable mail — received 53.4 million pieces of mail USPS couldn’t successfully handle using its normal network.

Of these, approximately 10.6 million mail pieces had “possible value” — and the MRC delivered or returned almost half of these pieces. The rest either had no value or didn’t have information the MRC could use to determine senders or receivers.

USPS Data Delays

without comments

From the PostalOne! Help Desk:

SASP Delayed Processing  Notification  Ticket# 338687

An issue has been identified with the SASP system that has created a backlog in eDoc processing.  As a result the Mailer Feedback (Mailer Data Quality, Container/Tray Visibility) data availability will be delayed by 1 to 2 days until the backlog is anticipated to clear by Sunday 9/2.

Notification will be provided when the backlog is clear and processing returns to normal.

————————————
Be advised that Full Service ACS, in addition to Container/Tray visibility processing, is also affected by these data provisioning delays.
