Effective April 5, 2012, the US Postal Service revised the Postal Operations Manual (POM) to provide updated information and procedures regarding modes of delivery and delivery equipment. The POM sets forth the policies, regulations and procedures of the USPS governing delivery and vehicle operations.
The revised procedures apply to new deliveries added to the delivery network. This revision provides the USPS with autonomy in determining the modes of delivery when adding new deliveries, thereby enabling the USPS to provide services in the most efficient and cost-effective manner.
Delivery will being in newly developed areas upon approval from a responsible USPS representative and only to locations and equipment approved by the USPS. Street delivery may be withheld until such time as approved site location(s) are agreed upon and the required delivery equipment has been installed.
For more information, see this letter from the USPS.
