Our logistical expertise moves your mail pieces to and through the USPS distribution system as efficiently and economically as possible.
Our focus on postal compliance maximizes your postage savings.
It starts with data hygiene. Our mail experts review your data for National Change of Address (NCOA) compliance and determine pre-sort and barcoding parameters. Accurate data is the first step in creating more efficient mail, and helps you qualify for automation discounts.
Additionally, our structural design staff reviews your mailer’s physical specs. Sometimes slight changes in size, paper, page count, and/or closure style have the potential to realize additional postage savings.
Meanwhile, our postal logistics team performs a mail load plan using your mailing list and mailer specs. This determines what shipping resources and transportation requirements are necessary to meet your critical in-home or in-mail dates without negating the mailing discounts you've earned.

The USPS also offers postage discounts based on volume and density. Volume and density are key factors in determining how far into the postal delivery system mail can enter, bypassing some traditional initial sorting steps. This saves the USPS time and effort, and those savings are passed on to mailers.
For those mailings not large enough to qualify for this extra discount, we capture those savings for you with strategic commingling or co-palletization.
Both processes allow smaller mailings to be combined with mail from other sources into larger communal “pools.” This creates the volumes needed to bypass the intermediate sorting process and be delivered directly to the appropriate USPS Sectional Center Facility or Network Distribution Center.
