A pilot program from USPS is aiming to make international mailing easier for customers and retail associates.
The Postal Service has selected 10 high-volume international mail Post Offices to test a new, on-site customs form terminal. Customers enter customs data into the terminal, which generates the relevant customs forms they take to the retail counter to complete their transactions.
All retail associates have to do to complete package documentation is scan the barcode on the form to verify the customs data in the Customs Border Protection Manifesting System (CBPMAN) application.
The system is designed to reduce wait time in line and ensure accurate customs and shipping information.
Pacific Area Customer Programs Analyst Beverly Leymaster, who was present for the installation of five terminal sites, said “We look forward to providing our customers with an innovative retail experience.”
