United States of America – Delayed PREDES messages

10 February, 2017

USPS asks us to inform the designated operators of UPU member countries that, owing to a system error, PREDES messages were delayed in transmission from the USPS Chicago (ORD) office of exchange for the period of 21 to 30 January 2017.  The transmission delay caused the dispatch-closed date in the PREDES message to be later than the actual sending date of the dispatch.  USPS understands that receiving Posts' invoice dispatch dates may differ from the pre-advised dispatch dates, and USPS International Accounting is prepared to accept these dispatches.

USPS thanks all designated operators for their understanding.
