3-6 Drop-and-Pick Appointments

To reduce operational burden, drop-and-pick (D&P) appointments for mailings occurring on a regular frequency (i.e., on a consistent basis at least once a week) can be established at NDCs. D&P appointments are only available at an NDC for Parcel Select shipments in trailers that are at least 75 percent full. Otherwise, the shipment should be scheduled as a bedload appointment.
