Postal Service Approvals
ABOL Easy-eVS is eVS compliant, but you must be approved by USPS to ship eVS. ABOL software proactively manages your appplication process to obtain rapid USPS approvals for you.
The change in postal requirements is the trigger that’s accelerating the transition from untracked mail pieces to tracked parcels. Until very recently it was as simple as putting an address on a package and getting it out the door. New postal service regulations are mandating that package details be required which constitutes some type of automation. The move to lower cost tracked alternatives can be showcased with the advent of the USPS ePacket service. It’s a hybrid of traditional mail and premium parcel services. ABOL Software is the first 3rd party software vendor to support ePacket. The holy grail of international parcel services is to reach the volume where direct injection is profitable. Packages are labeled with country specific carriers labels and then shipped in bulk to the destination country. Offering this service successfully and in a scalable meaning requires the perfect combination of systems and operational excellence.
The USPS has a international First-Class bulk delivery services at presort discounts called “International Priority Airmail” (IPA) and “International Surface Air Lift” (ISAL). There is also a bulk service carried by IPA or ISAL for non-dutiable (mostly flats) to a single addressee, called M-Bag. These services permit sorted mail to be sacked into sacks weighing generally between 5 and 66 pounds. Postage is calculated generally by sack weight, but there are some per-piece charges as well. Dutiable parcels will have a barcoded CN22 attached. There is no requirement for barcodes on non-dutiable parcels. ABOL is one of the few system and service providers which can offer domestic and international consolidation systems.
ABOL has long experience working with domestic consolidators and understands their needs. In addition, over the last six years, ABOL has pioneered international direct injection services for carriers and shippers around the world. With the addition of the IPA / ISAL services, ABOL has the complete consolidator solution no other service provider can offer in one platform. In addition, it’s scalable and flexible to support the most demanding operations.
