DISTRIBUTION REQUIREMENTS
RESTRICTED INFORMATION



1 INTRODUCTION
Suppliers will need to make destination distribution and separations by product type for their
regional service area using the criterion listed below.

2 DISTRIBUTION REQUIREMENTS
2.1     Trays and Tubs
At the supplier’s destinating facility, letters trays and flat tubs, after the sleeves and lids are
removed, must be placed in different MTE.

5-Digit Level
If there are 5-digit trays/tubs for one ZIP Code, the supplier will need to make up an MTE for that
5-digit ZIP Code destination. After the container is full (12 inches from the top of the container),
the supplier will need to sort additional trays/tubs for that 5-digit destination into another MTE if
there is half of an MTE or more of trays/tubs to the 5-digit destination. If there is less than half a
container of overflow trays/tubs for that 5-digit destination, the supplier will need to sort those
trays/tubs into the next level container (5-digit scheme).

5-Digit Scheme
The next sortation will require the supplier to group 5-digit destination trays/tubs for two or more
5-digit ZIP Code zones into one MTE. The supplier will need to create a MTE for that 5-digit ZIP
Code scheme grouping. After the container is full (12 inches from the top of the container), the
supplier will need to sort additional trays/tubs for that 5-digit scheme grouping into another MTE if
there is a half of container or more of trays/tubs to the 5-digit grouping. If there is less than half a
container of overflow trays/tubs for that 5-digit grouping, the supplier will need to sort those
trays/tubs into a 3-digit scheme MTE. The 5-digit scheme groupings will be provided at a later
date.

3-Digit Scheme Level
The next sortation will require the supplier to group 5-digit and 3-digit destination trays/tubs for
two or more 3-digit ZIP Code zones into one MTE. The supplier will need to create a MTE for
that 3-digit ZIP Code scheme grouping. After the container is full (12 inches from the top of the
container), the supplier will need to sort additional trays/tubs for that 3-digit scheme grouping into
another MTE if there is a half of container or more of trays/tubs to the 3-digit grouping. If there is
less than a half a container of overflow trays/tubs for that 3-digit grouping, the supplier will need
to sort those trays/tubs into an SCF level MTE.

SCF Level
If there are overflow 5-digit, 3-digit, or SCF trays/tubs, the supplier will need to create an MTE for
that SCF ZIP Code destination. After the container is full (12 inches from the top of the
container), the supplier will need to sort additional trays/tubs for that SCF destination into another
MTE if there is a half of container or more of trays/tubs to the destination. If there is less than a
half of container of overflow trays/tubs for that SCF destination, the supplier will need to sort
those trays/tubs into an AADC container per the labeling list.

AADC Level
If there are overflow 5-Digit, 3-digit, SCF or AADC letter trays, the supplier will need to create a
MTE for that AADC ZIP Code destination. After the container is full (12 inches from the top of the
container), the supplier will need to sort additional trays for that AADC destination into another
MTE if there is a half of container or more of trays to the destination. If there is less than a half of
container of overflow trays for that 3-digit destination, the supplier will need to sort those trays into
an ADC container per the labeling list.

ADC Level
If there are ADC trays/tubs, the supplier will need to create a MTE for that ADC ZIP Code
destination.

2.2     Sacks
5-Digit Level
If there are 5-digit sacks for one ZIP Code, the supplier will need to create a MTE for that 5-digit
ZIP Code destination. After the container is full (12 inches from the top of the container), the
supplier will need to sort additional sacks for that 5-digit destination into another MTE if there is a
half of container or more of sacks to the 5-digit destination. If there is less than a half a container
of overflow sacks for that 5-digit destination, the supplier will need to sort those sacks into a 3-
digit container.

3-Digit Level
If there are 3-digit sacks for one ZIP Code, the supplier will need to create a MTE for that 3-digit
ZIP Code destination. After the container is full (12 inches from the top of the container), the
supplier will need to sort additional sacks for that 3-digit destination into another MTE if there is a
half of container or more of sacks to the 5-digit destination. If there is less than a half a container
of overflow sacks for that 3-digit destination, the supplier will need to sort those sacks into an
SCF container per labeling lists.

SCF Level
If there are SCF sacks for one ZIP Code, the supplier will need to create a MTE for that SCF ZIP
Code destination. After the container is full (12 inches from the top of the container), the supplier
will need to sort additional sacks for that SCF destination into another MTE if there is a half of
container or more of sacks to the SCF destination. If there is less than a half a container of
overflow sacks for that 5-digit destination, the supplier will need to sort those sacks into an ADC
container per the labeling list.

ADC Level
If there are remaining sacks or ADC sacks, the supplier will need to create a MTE for that ADC
ZIP Code destination.

2.3     Parcels
5-Digit Level
If there are 5-digit parcels for one ZIP Code, the supplier will need to create a MTE for that 5-digit
ZIP Code destination. After the container is full (12 inches from the top of the container), the
supplier will need to sort additional parcels for that 5-digit destination into another MTE if there is
a half of container or more of parcels to the 5-digit destination. If there is less than a half of
container of overflow parcels for that 5-digit destination, the supplier will need to sort those
parcels into a 3-digit container.

3-Digit Level
If there are 3-digit parcels for one ZIP Code, the supplier will need to create a MTE for that 3-digit
ZIP Code destination. After the container is full (12 inches from the top of the container), the
supplier will need to sort additional parcels for that 3-digit destination into another MTE if there is
a half of container or more of parcels to the 3-digit destination. If there is less than a half of
container of overflow parcels for that 3-digit destination, the supplier will need to sort those
parcels into an ADC container.

3-Digit Scheme Level
The next sortation will require the supplier to group 5-digit and 3-digit destination parcels for two

another MTE if there is a half of container or more of parcels to the 3-digit grouping. If there is
less than a half a container of overflow parcels for that 3-digit grouping, the supplier will need to
sort those trays/tubs into an SCF level MTE per below.

SCF Level
If there are overflow parcels beyond the 3-digit scheme level, the supplier will need to create a
MTE for that SCF ZIP Code destination. After the container is full (12 inches from the top of the
container), the supplier will need to sort additional parcels for that SCF destination into another
MTE if there is a half of container or more of parcels to the destination. If there is less than a half
of container of overflow parcels for that SCF destination, the supplier will need to sort those
trays/tubs into an AADC container per the labeling list.
