Plant-Verified Drop Shipment (PVDS) – Nonpostal Documentation

Today we posted on Postal Explorer® the “Plant-Verified Drop Shipment (PVDS) – Nonpostal Documentation,” Federal Register final rule regarding bills of lading presented by mailers’ transportation providers.

Postal personnel may sign a bill of lading, upon request, as long as it is presented separately from required documentation. A bill of lading is not a substitute for PS Form 8125, Plant-Verified Drop Shipment (PVDS) Verification and Clearance, or for any form of official documentation for USPS® acceptance purposes.

This final rule will be incorporated into the July 6 DMM® update.
