Learning Objective: Recall the procedures
for measuring items for mailing.
The maximum size that any article may be, and still
be mailable, is l08 inches in length and girth combined
except for Standard Mail (B) parcels that are mailed as
oversized mail (130 inches length and girth combined).
You might ask, what is meant by the girth? How do I
figure the size of an article? Figure 4-1 shows how the
length and girth of certain articles are measured. The
size of an article is determined by:
· Measuring the longest side to get the length.
· Measuring the distance around the article (girth).
See figure 4-1.
