Parcel Assessment Reprieve (For Now)
The United States Postal Service (USPS) has delayed the requirements and assessments for parcels originally scheduled for January of 2016. The regulation mandates all packages shipped in the United States include a complete address that electronically delivery point validates prior to time of delivery. An assessment of $0.20 per piece will be charged for any package that does not meet the requirement. The delay gives industry additional time to implement strategies to meet the regulations prior to assessments being charged.
Any mailing prepared with BCC Mail Manager ensures that all of your parcels meet the requirements, even before the assessments begin. Be sure to use BCC Software’s CASS certified solutions to process your parcel mailing lists and you won’t have anything to worry about when this new regulation goes into effect.
