To-Be Mail Direction Search and Mail Direction File

  • The Mail Direction Search Report will provide three views

    • Default and Redirection View

    • Drop Entry Point View

    • Label List View

  • The Mail Direction File v2 introduces a number of new concepts including the concept of “Drop Entry Points” rather than distinguishing between “Default” and “Redirections”

  • Both of these documents are accessible to users pre- and post-login


To be mail direction search report default and redirection view
To-Be Mail Direction Search Report – Default and Redirection View

  • The Default and Redirection View of the Mail Direction Search is based off the AS-IS Mail Direction Search

  • “Default Effective Dates” are introduced which identifies the Effective Start, End and Grace Dates when a Label List (Default Entry Point) change is made

    • The ZIP Range for a Label Changes (e.g. SCF 010-013 becomes SCF 010-015) or is associated to another facility

    • The Label Text of a Label Changes (e.g. SCF SPRINGFIELD MA 010 becomes SCF SPRINGFIELD MA 015)

  • “Redirections By Truck Size” are introduced to distinguish when a redirection is only applicable to trucks above or below a truck length

    • A new column added to the display results

To-Be Mail Direction Search Report – Drop Entry Point View Redirection View

  • The Drop Entry Point View of the Mail Direction Search is based off “Drop Entry Points” rather than the concept of “Defaults” and “Redirections”.

    • A single drop entry point will be returned for each CIN Group, Discount, ZIP Range and Pallet Code. Exceptions will be grouped together in shades of gray in the following instances

      • Truck Size Redirections

      • Different Effective Date Ranges

      • Multiple Entry Points for some BMC Discount Drop Entry Points (ASF and BMC)

    • A drop entry point will only have an effective start, end and grace date

  • The Search Criteria will remain the same as the Default and Redirection View


To be mail direction search report label list view
To-Be Mail Direction Search Report – Label List View Redirection View

  • The Label List View of the Mail Direction Search is based off search criteria from Label Lists and specific Labels.

    • A single Label List can be chosen and all “Default” and “Redirections” for that Label List will be displayed (3-digit lists only).

    • A Label List can be filtered to show all the “Default” and “Redirections” for a specific label.

    • “Default” and “Redirections” will only be displayed for Label Lists applicable to Destination Discounts

  • The Search Criteria will remain the same as the Default and Redirection View
