Sending parcels to the addresses of US military units: APO / FPO
A large number of recipients are U.S. military personnel or civilians working at U.S. military installations. Our system is set up in such a way that the addresses of US military installations are always listed in the correct format when you create a shipment from a transaction in your My Account.
The following instructions are written for those who want to change the delivery address to the address of a US military unit.
So, the usual address of a recipient located in a US military unit looks like this
PSC 91 Box 6548
APO, AE 09464
first and last name of the recipient (name): John Doe
the recipient's address: PSC 91 Box 6548
zip code: 09464
country: United States
Pay attention to the new rules for packing parcels for Plus and Direct consolidations.
To ensure that your parcels are scanned faster and do not require manual processing by postal employees (and thus reach your customers faster and do not require additional fees for their processing), please follow the simple packaging requirements of the postal service:
● Do not wrap parcels for consolidation with film or stretch wrap (only the goods inside the parcel can be wrapped with protective film).
● Do not tape the entire parcel.
Replace tubes with square or triangular packaging.
Postal service rules allow you to:
- Send a courier package and tape it in several places (but not completely!);
- wrap the parcel with tape only in a few places so that the parcel keeps its shape;
- wrap the goods inside the cardboard box with a film/bag;
- put cardboard boxes in a courier package.
The UPS label for PLUS and DIRECT consolidations will be generated by the system in your account.
