DMM Revision: Hold For Pickup Service Expanded to Additional Products

From Postal Bulletin PB 22400:

Effective November 8, 2014, the Postal Service™ will revise Mailing Standards of the United States Postal Service, Domestic Mail Manual (DMM®) section 508.7.0 to expand Hold For Pickup service to include Parcel Select Lightweight and Bound Printed Matter parcels.

In order to provide mailers with additional options to have their shipments held at a designated Post Office™ location for pickup by a specified addressee or designee, the Postal Service is expanding Hold For Pickup to include shipments of Parcel Select Lightweight and Bound Printed Matter parcels. Additionally, the DMM language for Hold For Pickup service is being consolidated to eliminate unnecessary wording, without changing the actual standards.

Although these standards will not be updated in the online DMM until December 8, 2014, these standards are effective November 8, 2014.
