USPS Defers Full-Service IMb Implementation

From a United States Postal Service Industry Alert of December, 2013:

“ … [T]he Postal Service is delaying the Jan. 26, 2014 implementation of the Full-Service Intelligent Mail requirement for automation price discounts. Mailers who are not currently enrolled in full-service effective Jan. 26, 2014 will still be able to claim automation prices. To achieve the best pricing, however, mailers must continue meeting full-service requirements.

“Despite this delay, the Postal Service remains strongly committed to full-service adoption for all mailers. The value of full-service is well known and helps the mailing community to get the best value-added experience for its mail. The Postal Service will continue moving aggressively to achieve 100 percent visibility in the mail through full-service.

“We encourage mailers to contact their Mail Service providers and Software vendors to help transition to full-service to get the full-service discount prices ….”


No new implementation date has been cited.
