3-4 Electronic Appointments

3-4.1 Overview

A mailer with access to FAST must provide all pertinent information as required by the system. If other information requested is not available (e.g., vehicle number) at the time the appointment is made, the mailer can provide it by electronically modifying the appointment profile at least 1 hour prior to the arrival of the shipment. A mailer may query drop shipment arrival data from the system. Using the Appointment ID as a reference, the mailer may obtain the actual date and time of shipment arrival and unload times.
