The following is the list of days that ILDS will not provide service during the upcoming holidays this year.

During the analysis of the ILDS fiscal year-end statistics, we noticed that there are some ILDS participants who are not completing the step of approving the manifest in the ILDS Label/Manifest system. While it is not necessary for you to print daily manifests to put with your outgoing shipment, it is important that you complete the step of approving the manifest. The statistics that are gathered from the Label/Manifest system are not counted until the manifest is approved.

RAILS is having an all staff in-service day on July 27, 2018.  IHLS will be having theirs on July 30.  Delivery will not be provided on these days in the affected regions.  You can refer to the RAILS and IHLS newsletters and messages for more information about these dates.
