fast system release deps
FAST System Release - DEPS
  • Starting on May 28, 2006, FAST will be the owner of the ZIP CIN file and CIN List file via a new sub-system of FAST.
  • This sub-system is called the Drop Entry Point System or DEPS and will provide the information necessary to identify the drop shipment discounts
  • FAST will also store the remaining three Drop Ship Product files. USPS will no longer provide the Drop Ship Product via CD subscription; you will simply access FAST at and download these files for free!
    • Address File - USPS facility address and telephone information
    • Supplemental Site File - dock information, processing hours, and directions to the drop ship facilities
    • Parcel File - facility information that identifies the drop ship facility for ZIP Codes split by carrier route based on the Majority of City carriers rule for parcels.
    •  ZIP CIN File - ZIP Codes, carrier routes, CIN and drop ship carrier sequence barcode sorter (CSBCS) discount codes, and drop site key for additional discounts
  • The last fulfillment of the Drop Ship Product CD by the National Customer Support Center will be July 2006. For questions related to the CD or the DSP files please contact the Address Management Customer Care Department at 1-800-238-3150.
  • AMS has sent a letter to all Drop Ship Product subscribers with the last date of the CD provided product.
