Entry Point Discount (EPDs) data source provides mailers with EPDs applicable to a container’s destination ZIP. Data Relationship data source associates CCIDs to EPDs to determine a container’s USPS facility ID for processing. Mailers lookup USPS facility ID in USPS Facility data source to find a container’s physical USPS facility location. MTAC Workgroup 106 – Next:  MTAC Workgroup 106 – Next What’s Next?
