Optional eInduction Marking on Intelligent Mail Container Placard

Effective May 29, 2014, the Postal Service™, in collaboration with the mailing industry, has designed an optional eInduction marking to be used on Intelligent Mail container placards for containers flagged for eInduction processing. The eInduction program allows the acceptance of business mail at drop shipment facilities without the need to provide a PS Form 8125 or PS Form 8017. The new optional marking will allow mailers to identify eInduction pallets, which facilitates the acceptance process and allows better communication between mailers regarding containers flagged for eInduction.

The picture below shows a container placard with the optional eInduction marking:
