Standard Mail Affected by USPS Load Leveling

Standard Mail Affected by USPS Load Leveling

uspsstandardmailOn April 10th, the USPS implemented their Destination Sectional Center Facility (DSCF) Load Leveling Plan. The plan will allow workload equalization of mail volumes throughout the week.

Implementation of this plan means that Standard Mail, when accepted on Fridays and Saturdays, will change from the standard delivery expectation of 3 days to 4 days. In other words, it will take longer for Standard Mail to arrive at its destination.

The change will level the disproportionate amount of mail now delivered on Mondays to other days of the week. The benefits of this are improved return times, improved processing efficiency, reduced operating costs and a more consistent delivery of mail for customers.

This change does not affect current service standards for First-Class Mail or Periodicals.
