Dispatching Outside Pieces/Mail
mail received at military post offices is contained in pouches.    When  dispatching  mail,  MPOs  normally only use pouches, so for purposes of this section, all references are to dispatching mail in pouches. All  mail  will  be  pouched  if  not  trayed,  by classification  and  service,  considering  priorities  and transportation policies.   MPOs dispatching mail will follow  the  guidelines  established  by  USPS  in  the DMM, POM, USPS HDBK T-7, and USPS PUB 52 regarding proper pouching of mail.   Additionally, all MPOs will use the following general guidelines when pouching mail:    Dispatching  agencies  must  not  commingle priority,  First-Class  Mail,  and  free  mail  with other classes of mail without prior approval of the serving JMPA.    Items that could damage mailbags or other mail must not be pouched but must be dispatched as outside pieces (OSPs); sometimes referred to as outside  mail  (OSMs).    OSPs  are  parcels  that because   of   size,   shape,   density,   weight, container, or contents cannot be placed in mail pouches. FILM MAILERS The following procedures apply to film mailers:    Film   mailers   being   sent   to   commercial processing laboratories should be dispatched in Priority Mail No.1 or No. 2 pouches.    Film   mailers   being   sent   to   commercial processing  laboratories  may  be  consolidated with  First-Class  letter  mail  in  the  event  the volume does not justify direct pouching.    Film  mailers  not  being  sent  to  commercial processing  laboratories  and  voice  or  videotape cassettes  entering  the  customs  territory  of  the United   States   (CTUS)   will   be   pouched separately,  in  Priority  Mail  No.1  or  No.  2 pouches. HAZARDOUS MATERIAL Hazardous  materials  may  be  mailed  when  they meet criteria established by USPS.  Special wrapping and  packaging  rules  apply  and  hazardous  material must be prepared for mailing, and marked, or tagged according to the instructions contained in Modules C and  E  of  the  DMM,  and  USPS  PUB  52. If  all conditions   of   the   DMM   and   PUB   52   are   met, hazardous  material  accepted  for  mailing  will  be pouched separately from all other mail. MAIL FOR MILITARY AND FOREIGN ADDRESSES Mail addressed to an FPO or APO address must be bundled  separately  from  other  mail  and  labeled MILITARY  WORKING.   These  packages  and  other mail similarly addressed should be placed in pouches, endorsed MILITARY WORKING, and dispatched to the nearest FMC or MPO. Mail addressed for delivery through international mail channels must be bundled separately from other mail,  labeled  MIXED  FOREIGN,  and  dispatched  to the nearest FMC or MPO.   FMCs or MPOs receiving foreign mail must rework and dispatch such mail to the nearest  civil  or  military  post  office  authorized  to exchange international mail. Pouches  and  bundles  of  military  working  mail received  at  FMCs  or  MPOs  must  be  reworked  and dispatched according to instructions of the appropriate area mail coordinator through channels that will ensure expeditious delivery. PARCELS Parcels  accepted  over  the  counter  at  finance windows or received from other sources are taken to the dispatch section and processed.  Depending on the size,  parcels  are  either  enclosed  in  pouches  or processed  as  outside  pieces. Dispatch  clerks  must pouch  parcels  whenever  possible  to  reduce  the handling of mail. OUTSIDE PIECES/MAIL (OSP/OSM) Parcels that require handling outside of mailbags are those that because of their size, weight, nature, or contents  cannot  be  enclosed  inside  sacks  without damaging them or other mail.  The fact that a parcel is priority  mail,  sent  as  special  handling,  or  contains perishable  items  does  not  in,  and  of  itself  justify outside dispatch. A  parcel  is  considered  as  an  OSP/OSM  if  it exceeds any of the following factors:    Size—Elongated  parcels  over  34  inches  in length or over 17 inches in width    Weight—Parcels weighing over 35 pounds 9-25
