FASTforward - definition(s)

FASTforward - A USPS-licensed automated system that updates addresses by matching names and addresses with current change-of-address orders on file. A piece updated with FASTforward can be delivered directly to the new address rather than forwarded from the old address. FASTforward systems interface with USPS-approved automation systems such as multiline optical character readers (MLOCRs) and remote video encoding (RVE) operations. FASTforward is available in two applications. The Mailing List Correction application updates computerized name and address mailing lists before mailpiece creation. The MLOCR/RVE application provides an "on-piece" address correction during mail processing before deposit into the mailstream.
