The Benefits of Postal Optimization

We're experts at cross-border distribution between the U.S. and Canada and all of our fulfillment and distribution personnel, including agency personnel, are Customs-Trade Partnership Against Terrorism (C-TPAT)-certified. C-TPAT is a joint government business initiative to build cooperative relationships that strengthen overall supply chain and border security.

Let us help you create a longer advertising lifecycle, reduce your distribution costs and improve delivery efficiency.

For example, our services for magazine publishers include:

  • Co-Palletization. Bundled magazines are grouped with others going to the same destination. This is particularly useful for small- to mid-circulation magazines that don't have the volume going into any given postal facility to make the minimum pallet size of 200 pounds.
  • Co-Mailing. Different magazine titles from different publishers that mail within a specified timeframe are combined offline into a single mailstream to generate greater postal discounts.
  • Drop shipping. Magazines and other printed matters are shipped independent of the postal system to mailing facilities closer to the final destination to take advantage of postage discounts and speed delivery.

As part of postal optimization program, we can help you evaluate lighter-weight papers and alternative trim sizes to reduce costs without compromising your brand image.
