Local Periodicals Service – New Mandatory Posting Condition on Pre-sort Mail (with effect from 1 April 2017)

2017.03.17

Local Periodicals customers who wish to continue enjoying the current postage rate on Local Periodicals Service have to pre-sort the mail items by Delivery Offices (DOs) prior to posting with effect from 1 April 2017.  Senders have to use the Hongkong Post's Online Address Pre-assessment Tool at EC-ship Online Platform (www.ec-ship.hk) to match each of the mailing address with the respective DO code / DBI (if applicable). The mail items shall be pre-printed with the respective DO codes / DBIs and segregated by DO codes for lodgement. Items belonging to the same lodgement that do not carry DO codes or not properly segregated by DO shall be charged according to the Local Bulk Economy postage rates (from 150g).

Please note that if the mis-sort rate of the lodgement is found exceeding 5% of the total pre-sort items, all the pre-sort mails shall be charged according to the Local Bulk Economy postage rates.

The updated posting conditions of Local Periodicals are also available at Hongkong Post website (www.hongkongpost.hk). For enquiries, please contact us on 2921 2277.
