Message board to keep postal customers informed of changes to mailing standards, services, and prices.

March 8, 2010


The Postal Service™ continues to look at all areas of its business with an eye toward becoming more efficient and cost effective. At the same time, our commitment to customer service remains a top priority.

With this commitment in mind, we invite customers to attend Plant Verified Drop Shipment (PVDS) webinars. These webinars, which have been offered over the past few weeks, touch on key steps in accepting drop-ship mailings.

Last week, we experienced technical difficulties while attempting to present a PVDS webinar. As a result of those unforeseen difficulties, we are offering you the chance to take part in one this Wednesday, March 10, beginning at 2:00 p.m. (EST). Join Pritha Mehra, vice president, Business Mail Entry and Payment Technologies, for a discussion on drop-ship mailing processes followed by a question and answer session.

Here’s how to attend the 90-minute webinar:
