January 26, 2014 Mailing Services and Shipping Services Price Change Update — Plant-Verified Drop Shipment

As a reminder, Mailing Services and Shipping Services prices will change on January 26, 2014. Relative to that change, plant-verified drop shipment (PVDS) mailings will be verified and accepted as follows:

Current Prices — PVDS mailings verified and paid for before January 26, 2014, using the current prices, will be accepted at destination entry postal facilities through February 9, 2014, when presented with appropriate verification and payment documentation.

New Prices — PVDS mailings may be verified and paid for beginning January 13, 2014, using the new prices, provided the shipments are not deposited at destination entry postal facilities until January 26, 2014, or later, when presented with appropriate verification and payment documentation.

  • For mailings with electronic documentation, mailers must enter a Mail Arrival Date that is on or after January 26, 2014.

Darrell Issa’s Mischievous Postal Reform Bill

without comments

Replace “mischievous” with ridiculous.
