For today’s e-commerce platforms, the US Postal Service® is an important part of the shipping mix. Using GrandShipper to access the USPS can help you save money and provide a fantastic customer experience, regardless of the size of your company or how many items you ship.
USPS has ZERO surcharges when it comes to delivering your packages opposed to private carriers. Here are possible surcharges you may encounter with FedEx and UPS:
• Address Correction
• Delivery Area Surcharge
• Extended Delivery Area Surcharge
• Fuel Surcharge
• Residential Surcharge
• Saturday Delivery and Pick Up
For all letters, large envelopes and parcels, that’s an extra day faster your package is delivered. Reducing returns, buyer’s remorse while increasing customer satisfaction.
In real estate, it’s all about Location Location Location! The Postal Service conveniently has over 35,500+ managed retail locations across the United States. USPS is the only carrier that ships to APO/FPO and P.O. Boxes. If you haven’t considered, you’re missing an entire market share within your business.
United States Postal Service is the only carrier that ships directly to our men and women in service. Packages are treated as a domestic shipment even if your loved one is half way across the world.
Do you ship to Puerto Rico, Alaska, Hawaii, Guam or the U.S. Virgin Islands? USPS charges domestic rates oppose to private carriers charging International. Utilizing Priority Mail can get there as quick as 2 days (including Saturday). Compare that with FedEx and UPS.
U.S. Code Section 1708 – what’s that? Since USPS is governed by Federal Agency, mail tampering or theft is considered a federal crime (felony). Fines can be upward to $250,000 with a maximum of 5 years’ imprisonment – now that’s something to think about for those mischiefs.
GrandShipper can also connect you with a dedicated Postal Representative. Postal Representatives can assist your needs in USPS supplies, pickups, help with tracking issues, learn about negotiated rates for high volume customers and many more!
