323 Delivery Point Sequence (DPS) Mail. The supplier and contract carrier should follow the guidance of the Administrative Official in the handling of DPS mail. Generally, if the vehicle is right hand drive, the contract carrier would be expected to take the DPS mail directly to the street. On routes with other vehicle types, this decision is based on average mail volume, vehicle capacity, vehicle type, and the contract carrier’s ability to adhere to the schedule. Contract carriers may shift DPS mail to other containers including half trays for ease of use on the street.
322 Casing Mail. When a supplier is required to case mail, he or she should label the case in order of delivery from left to right. The address of the customer must appear on case labels. At the supplier’s option, the name may be added. All case labels utilized must be computer generated by the Address Management System (AMS) utilizing the AMS case labeling system.
324.3 Simplified Address Mail (Box Holders). This refers to the distribution of mail without individual names and addresses. Normally, deliver one piece for each box (or one for each family) except as noted in 333.2. This type of mail must be handled as a separate bundle on the street.
