Popular Mail and Shipping Terms

Due to improvements in technology, many individuals demand more of the postal service. Pre-stamped envelopes and tracking options are just a couple of the new items available for shippers. Following is some mail and shipping terminology that will help familiarize you with the postal system.

  • Automatic Processing System Acceptance – Indicating that an envelope or package does not need to be processed manually. Instead, it is able to be processed automatically, and more quickly, using an automatic processing system, or APS.
  • CASS Certification – The CASS system involves the many digitals that appear on parcels. Accurate zip codes and carrier routes are essential to ensure a speedy and hassle free delivery. CASS certification is obtained by a business that accurately labels all outgoing mail. This is advantageous for the shipper and the postal office because it allows for a more efficient delivery.
  • Network Distribution Centers – The use of network distribution centers, or NDCs, is a new postal organization method. Fewer sorting and shipping locations are used, which increases efficiency and decreases processing costs.
  • Delivery Confirmation – This service is offered to individuals who ship a parcel. They can track their package and receive alerts when a delivery is attempted and when a delivery is successful. Delivery confirmations are often sent to email addresses and cellular phones.
  • Manifested – Manifested refers to a parcel that has had its shipping paid for. A stamp indicates that the item is ready for mailing.
  • Forwarded – The addressee of the envelope or package has relocated. If proper information is left behind, the item will automatically be sent to the new address instead.

    Mailing and shipping services can be utilized for business or personal use. Some companies have to send out several packages on a daily or weekly basis. The best rate can be found by using the postal service or another freight company. The rate is partially based on domestic versus international, which is determined by whether the package will be shipped within the country or internationally outside of the country. The size or weight of the cargo also determines the cost. If the mail is under a certain weight and size, then a standard postage stamp may be sufficient. This could be for an envelope, letter or typical greeting card. All other containers will generally require a label from the parcel company. Labels and stamps can be purchased online and printed from your computer, and you will also receive a tracking number with the label. Many packages cannot be shipped to a PO Box and must have a physical address. When shipping an item for business purposes, it is common to require a signature upon arrival. This is for documentation and liability purposes. Express delivery is always going to have a higher cost. Some companies may run a special for next day or two day shipping. A tracking number allows you to follow the delivery of the package from the point it is dropped off until the parcel is received. Rates may change around certain holidays to account for the increased business that the parcel companies have. When purchasing items for holidays, merchants may have specials for shipping as a result of having a bulk order with the freight company. If the merchant has enough supply of the product, it allows you to receive the merchandise in a timely fashion and they can also provide an extra service for minimal costs.
