New USPS Guides To Informed Visibility Mail Tracking & Reporting

The USPS released two important guides for Informed Visibility Mail Tracking & Reporting:

1. IV Mail Tracking & Reporting User Guide

This guide provides information about the USPS Informed Visibility Mail Tracking & Reporting (IV-MTR) application, which allows mailers to track letter and flat containers, handling units (trays, tubs, and sacks), bundles, and pieces.

IV-MTR provides the mailing industry with powerful insight into the Postal mailstream. The application provides near real-time mail tracking data for letters and flats. It leverages the intelligence of Full-Service Intelligent Mail and nesting associations to create assumed handling events and offers logical handling events, such as logical delivery events, based on business rules. With IV-MTR, mailers can leverage key information about their mailings to manage operations, refine processes, and adjust marketing campaigns as needed.

This guide provides information about using MailXML to receive mail tracking data through the IV-MTR application. Through Mail.XML, mailers can receive visibility information for letter and flat containers and handling units (trays, tubs, and sacks).
