Advisory – Presort Object New Properties & Data File

As you are probably aware, the USPS® is starting to push for Mailers to use Seamless Acceptance. In order to participate in Seamless Acceptance, we are adding three new Properties and a Data file to Presort Object.

The new Properties will be:

Property Description
POMLocaleKey This property will be required if you are producing Mail.dat files and is a 9-digit code based on your Post Office of Mailing.
DDULocaleKey This property is a 9-digit code based on the DDU you are taking your mail to. It will only be used for Standard Flat ECRRT mailings that are dropped off at the DDU.
DDUPostalCode This property is the 9-digit zip code of the DDU Post Office. It will only be used for Standard Flat ECRRT mailings that are dropped off at the DDU.

For example:

Our Post Office in Rancho Santa Margarita has a Locale key of LOCZ22621.

The new data file will be a Comma delimited file titled LocaleKey.csv. This new file will contain a list of every Post Office and its associated Locale Key. This file will be updated monthly along with all the other presort data files.

 

The LocaleKey.csv will include the following fields:

Field Name Description Sample Data
LocaleKey Unique Identifier for the post office. LOCZ22621
DestinationCode The Type of Post Office. D = DDU

S = SCF

B = NDC

Name The Name of the Post Office. RANCHO SANTA MARGARITA
Address The Address of the Post Office. 29862 AVENIDA DE LAS BANDERAS
City The City of the Post Office. RANCHO SANTA MARGARITA
State The State of the Post Office. CA
Zip The zip of the Post Office. 926889998

We are currently working to have these changes implemented into the next release of Presort Object.

If you do not want to implement these changes right away, do not run the setup.exe or update the DLL and just copy the data files over from the Data folder.
