Software evaluation simplifies process for Manifest Mailing Systems.

Varsity Logistics™, Inc., the leader in integrated shipping solutions for the IBM iSeries, today announced the successful completion of the United States Postal Service Manifest Analysis and Certification, also known as MAC.

Varsity has offered a USPS Carrier Compliance Kit (CCK) for several years, and elected to undertake this important voluntary certification, which examines and certifies the accuracy of software packages used to calculate postage payment for single-piece and presort-rated mailings at domestic and international rates.

MAC, developed by the USPS in partnership with the mailing industry, is available to manifest mailing product developers of software for single-piece rates mail and presorted, non-identical piece mail. It tests personal, midrange, or mainframe computer software. To be MAC-certified, software must, at a minimum, accurately manifest a basic package of specific class and rate categories. MAC also tests and certifies the ability of software to generate facsimile mailing statements and other documentation that must meet USPS standards.

"With this certification, Varsity's USPS CCK customers can now count on simpler and easier local compliance with the USPS," said Walt Jader, Director of Operations at Varsity Logistics. "Our clients using USPS depend on Varsity to deliver the highest caliber shipping solutions to ensure a consistent, efficient flow in their shipping process. This certification demonstrates Varsity's continuing commitment to provide that."

In addition to USPS, Varsity supports all major parcel carriers including UPS, FedEx, DHL, Airborne, and Purolator.
