USPS Priority Mail Open and Distribute

The USPS recently published proposed new standards for new for Priority Mail Open and Distribute service. Currently mailers may use the electronic option for Delivery Confirmation service on Priority Mail Open and Distribute containers at no additional cost. The USPS proposal would make this optional extra service a requirement.

Get on board and take advantage of this program right now, and be ready when the electronic delivery option becomes a requirement, by using our Postal Package Partner software.

Priority Mail Open and Distribute provide alternatives for mailers who want to expedite mailings of other classes of mail to destination postal facilities. Mailers prepare the mailings according to standards for the enclosed class of mail, enclose the mail in containers for expedited service as Priority Mail Open and Distribute, and present the mailings to a postal acceptance unit by the critical entry time for USPS shipment. Mailers may use Priority Mail Open and Distribute for all or part of their mailings.

All Priority Mail Open and Distribute containers receive expeditious handling and transportation.

Using Delivery Confirmation helps the Postal Service to monitor these mailings, and communicate the delivery status of each container to mailers.

Standard and Advanced Postal Package Partner versions support the USPS Priority Mail Open and Distribute program. Contact your Postal Specialist to upgrade, order, or learn more!

Best wishes,
