USPS Urges Customers to Switch from POSTNET to IMb Barcodes
This week saw USPS writing to 800,000 business mailers who hold a POSTNET permit to encouraging them to start making the transition to IMb. If they don’t make the switch by Jan. 28, 2013, those mailers will no longer be eligible for discounts for business mail prepared to standards for automated processing.
Companies that use a mail service provider are also being advised to check that their mailings will qualify for the automation price.
USPS wants to create 100-percent visibility in its mail stream by 2014, providing mailers with near real-time data on the location of mailpieces within the network
