  17. Network Placard • “RDC” trigger word does not point to NDLL • Use only for network placards destinating to NDC sites • Must be entered in “Placard Prep” in the following manner in order to display above text & Zip ranges: Note: comma & space must be between the trigger word and text or Zip ranges

  18. MTEL Retail Unit Placard For mail originating at retail units only MTEL will automatically produce distribution splits based on Retail Distribution Code (RDC) data DN & TANs Mgrs. must ensure transportation is in place to generate retail placards 18

  19. Network Routings Area DN Networks will create & update dispatch records in Nat’l Air & Surface System (NASS) Align routing with operating plan parameters Scheme will drive MTEL placard generation Establish routings from origin to the final destination Consistent with National Distribution Label List (NDLL) - Destination: AADC, ADC, NDC - Mail Classes: Standard, Periodicals, and Parcel Post 19

  20. Placarding Origins must ensure placards are placed on MTE before dispatch MTEL is an on-demand system Print only what you need for each day Print entire set weekly ONLY as contingency Do not use recycled placards Use correct mail class and shape HAZMAT placard option Ensure placard barcode area is clear to enable Surface Visibility (SV) scanning 20

  21. Key Implementation Activities – Transportation • Review MTEL Operational Areas • Remove unused placards • Assign new NDC placards • Suggest dedicated Operational Area for NDC placards • Use logical naming conventions • Use “Check Operational Area” to identify pending drops • Comply with SV scanning • OngoingTraining • Account for all scanners • Establish and maintain SOPs
