FAST Appointments for Mixed Periodicals Drop Shipments
Periodicals mailers can now schedule their Facilities Access and Shipment Tracking (FAST®)) Mixed Periodicals appointments (Periodicals mixed with Standard and/or Package Services mail) as if they were scheduling a 100 percent Periodicals appointment, anytime a facility is open and staffed.
In a future release, FAST will be enhanced to allow the scheduling of Mixed Periodicals appointments within a facility's hours of operation. In the meantime, mailers should follow the workaround outlined in the Creating FAST Appointments for Mixed Periodicals job aid on RIBBS® to ensure that their Mixed Periodicals appointments are created correctly.
