Why Aren’t You Using eInduction?

The USPS program eInduction has been around since 2013, but we continue to see many mailers who are still not taking advantage of it. eInduction is intended to replace the old hard copy PS Forms 8125 and 8017 clearance documents used for drop shipments of origin and destination mail – part of the continuing effort by the USPS to convert hard copy postal documentation into eDoc. Since the program began, the USPS has equipped acceptance facilities with scanners, which scan the container barcodes to ascertain that the containers have been properly verified and paid for at the origin post office. eInduction may be used for any drop ship entry facility, even if they are not yet equipped with these scanners. Mailers can even use it for origin mail.

If you have ever run into these situations, PMOD may be just the solution you have been looking for.
