NEW Service Type IDs for Periodicals with Alternative Addressing Effective February 23, 2019

Periodicals publishers who mail alternative address pieces (Or Current Resident / Occupant) will be able to opt-out of receiving address correction notifications when pieces are undeliverable-as-addressed. Periodicals with the occupant or exceptional address format that are undeliverable due to a vacancy or an invalid address will not generate an ACS or PS Form 3579 undeliverable notice when the new STID is used in the IMb.

More information, including the new Service Type IDs for use in the Intelligent Mail barcode for Periodical letters and flats with Alternative Addressing is available on PostalPro at:
