SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:

  • On September 26, 2000, the Postal Service published in the Federal Register (65 FR 57864) a notice of proposed changes to international postal rates, fees, and mail classifications. In that notice, we proposed eliminating the Global Package Link service. We also stated that current customers will be offered other services for their mail.
  • On December 8, 2000, the Postal Service published the final rule in the Federal Register (65 FR 77076). In that rule, we stated that the current service hasn't attracted enough customers to justify continuation of the service in its current form. Therefore, we eliminated the service. However, because of the comments from customers who use the Global Package Link service, the Postal Service delayed the elimination of the service until April 1, 2001. The delay was to allow Global Package Link customers enough time to transition to other products.
  • The Postal Service now realizes that some customers may need additional time to change their manifesting system; therefore, we have further delayed the effective date for elimination of the Global Package Link service until April 30, 2001.
