USPS Starts Fall Mailing Tips

Share this content:
The U.S. Postal Service is implementing a fall mailing season campaign aimed at mailers and postal facilities and designed to create awareness of key drop-shipment policies and improved holiday hours.


Posters will appear at bulk mailing centers, processing and distribution facilities and post offices the week of Sept. 20. They will include a message to employees from John Rapp, senior operations vice president at the USPS. It will feature tips such as planning for increased drop shipments, being accommodating for late or unscheduled arrivals and enforcing security requirements.


Mailers also will get tips to make the fall mailing season successful in the October issue of postal publications Memo to Mailers and Mailer's Companion. Tips will cover scheduling delivery of shipments and, if possible, avoiding busy mailing days such as Fridays, factoring extra time for dropping shipments and in-home delivery due to higher than normal volumes and ensuring drivers have proper identification and valid driver's licenses.
