8-3.4 Shipper Eligibility for Bypass Mail

A shipper wishing to participate in the bypass mail process must submit a cover letter and a completed application (see Appendix A for requirements and application). When it approves an application, the Postal Service schedules the applicant for a Surface-Air Management System – Alaska (S–AMS Alaska) shipper webpage training session within 30 days. A shipper does not qualify to participate in the bypass mail process until it has complete training. A shipper must update its bypass mail application when any changes occur in the shipper’s information or on a schedule as established in the Alaska Bypass Mail Procedures.
