indicating the destination, type of mail, weight, and office of dispatch. It is possible for the area mail coordinator (FMC or MPO), or in some cases the aircraft carrier your ship may be in company with, to provide instructions for you to send outgoing mail via pouch directly to them for consolidation and onward dispatch.   Inform your postal officer of dispatches to avoid any confusion and delays. AIRPORT-CODED TAGS (FLIGHT TAGS) AND SELF-ADHESIVE LABELS Slide labels, flight tags, and self-adhesive labels are the only external identifiers of end destinations for mail.  Therefore, extreme care must be taken to use the correct slide labels in pouches and MM trays, correct flight tags on pouches, and the correct self-adhesive labels on MM trays and OSPs before manifesting mail. The  instructions  for  the  proper  method  of completing  tags  and  labels  may  be  found  in  USPS HDBK T-7.   From the time mail is dispatched to its arrival at the airport of final destination, tags provide information  to  the  air  carrier  on  routing  for  mail pouches.  Self-adhesive labels serve the same purpose for MM trays and OSPs. Once  mail  is  pouched  and  properly  labeled identifying  the  destination,  contents,  weight,  and office of origin, affix the proper airport-coded tag to the  pouches.     For  OSPs  and  MM  trays,  attach airport-coded self-adhesive labels. You should be careful in selecting and preparing flight  tags  to  avoid  mail  being  misrouted  by  the  air carrier.   For example, a pouch containing First-Class Mail  destined  for  mixed  states  tendered  to  a commercial  air  carrier  from  a  ship  operating  in  the Pacific Ocean should have a label inserted in the label holder reading AMC SAN FRANCISCO CA 940. The final airport destination for this pouch should be San Francisco.   Therefore,  the  flight  tag  must  read  SFO (San Francisco).   Place the tag over the pouch staple and beneath the hasp before sealing the pouch.   The pouch grommet is not used for attachments of any tags. When  preprinted  airport-coded  flight  tags  and self-adhesive  labels  are  not  available,  prepare  the appropriate tags and labels by printing the three-letter city of destination code in the appropriate portion of PS Tag 135-B and PS Label 136-B (see figure 9-15).  For 9-27 PCf0914 WEIGHT CONVERSION CHART Pounds/Kilograms Pounds/Kilograms Pounds/ Pounds/ Kilograms/ Kilograms/ lb lb Kilos Kilos Pounds/ Kilograms/ lb Kilos Pounds/ Kilograms/ lb Kilos Figure 9-14.—A kilograms and pounds conversion chart.
