MAIL CONDITION PRIOR TO PICK-UP
COUNTED AND RECORDED ON PICK-UP RECORD SHEET:
Material should be counted and recorded on the supplied MTS pick-up record sheet prior to the arrival of the driver. All counts are subject to verification and random checks will be made to ensure the accuracy of these counts. Having mail ready prior to the arrival of the MTS driver will reduce waiting time and allow driver to continue his route in a timely fashion.
SEALED WITH RETURN ADDRESS:
In order to ensure the proper tracking, security, and confidentiality of your material it is required that each item is sealed and a return address affixed. This enables MTS Logistics to not only track your material, but it also allows us to return mail to your location without opening confidential items in order to determine the return address.
SPECIAL HANDLING INSTRUCTIONS:

It is strongly recommended that “DO NOT BEND” or “X-RAY” is written on the packaging of these items to ensure their proper care.
