Implementing Full-Service: Keeping Barcodes Unique

The first requirement for Full-Service is unique barcodes. Every mail piece, tray, sack or large container has a barcode. There are three barcode types: the Intelligent Mail® piece barcode (IMb™), the Intelligent Mail tray barcode (IMtb, also used on sacks) and the Intelligent Mail container barcode (IMcb). The IMcb is used on large containers like pallets, hampers, rolling stock and APCs. Each of these new barcodes has a field called the Serial Number. This field must be unique across all your mailings for a minimum of 45 days.
