intra-BMC or inter-BMC and whether it is machinable or nonmachinable, which is discussed below. Serving Bulk Mail Centers (BMCs) Once you have determined the weight and zone of destination, you must also determine if the article is within  the  delivery  area  of  your  serving  bulk  mail center (which is intra-BMC) or outside your bulk mail center  (which  is  inter-BMC).   The  ZIP  Code  in  the address of the article presented for mailing is used to determine  the  postal  zone,  and  whether  or  not  the article  is  intra-BMC  or  inter-BMC.    Using  the  first three digits of the ZIP Code, refer to the bottom of your USPS official zone chart (figure 4-3).  If the first three digits of the ZIP Code match those listed, the article is within the delivery area of your serving BMC. Nonmachinable (Outside Mail) If an article presented for mailing is determined to be outside the delivery area of your serving BMC, you must then determine if the article can be handled by machine (machinable) or must be physically handled by sorting personnel (nonmachinable).  If an article is defined  by  one  or  more  of  the  following  charac- teristics,  it  is  nonmachinable  and  is  processed  as outside mail (not sackable).    It is more than 34 inches long, 17 inches wide, or 17  inches  high,  or  weighing  more  than  35 pounds.    It contains more than 24 ounces of fluid in glass containers, or 1 gallon or more of liquid in metal or plastic containers.    It is not wrapped properly or is metal-banded.    It is a can, roll, or tube, or wooden or metal box.    It is a shrub or tree.    It contains perishables, such as eggs.    It  contains  books,  printed  matter,  or  business forms weighing more than 25 pounds.    It is a high-density parcel weighing more than 15 pounds, exerting more than 60 pounds per square foot pressure on its smallest side. Within (Intra-BMC) BMC Discount If  the  article  is  addressed  for  delivery  within  the delivery  area  of  your  serving  BMC,  then  you  would charge the Standard Mail (B) rate with a discount using the current rate chart listed in Module R of the DMM. Machinable/Nonmachinable Inter-BMC Mail If an article is addressed for delivery outside the delivery area of your serving BMC (inter-BMC) and the  article  is  determined  to  be  machinable,  then  the no-discount, no-surcharge rate applies.   On the other hand, if an article is addressed for delivery outside the delivery area of your serving BMC and the article is determined  to  be  nonmachinable,  the  applicable  rate plus  the  surcharge  applies. However,  if  a  special handling fee is paid, the nonmachinable surcharge is not to be charged. Nonmachinable Surcharge The nonmachinable surcharge must be assessed on inter-BMC parcel post without special handling if any of the following apply:    The length exceeds 34 inches.    The height exceeds 17 inches.    The width exceeds 17 inches.    The weight exceeds 35 pounds.    The  packaging  or  contents  are  among  those listed in Module E of the DMM. Oversized Surcharge The  oversize  surcharge  must  be  assessed  on  a parcel post article if the combined length and girth falls between 108 and 130 inches. Parcel  post  is  the  only  mail  class  that  accepts articles  with  a  combined  length  and  girth  over  108 inches.   The  oversized  rate  for  the  appropriate  zone must be charged for these articles.  The oversized rate is higher than the 70-pound rate, however the weight limit remains 70 pounds. Endorsements for Standard Mail (B) Endorse  Standard  Mail  (B)  as  “S  A  M”  and “STANDARD MAIL (B)” on the address side of the article (see figure 4-6).  SAM is given air service from the point of embarkation overseas to the point of entry into the U.S.  Once SAM arrives at the point of entry in the   Continental   United   States   (CONUS),   it   is transported  via  surface  (truck  or  rail)  to  its  final destination. 4-13
