Overnight and Mail Services

Inefficient or outdated mail processes can be costly. Not knowing how to identify and respond to security threats in your mail center can cost you even more. Our industry-recognized expertise means we can help you identify where you’re losing money, safeguard against potential threats before they happen and create customized solutions.

Shipping Analysis and RFP

Partnering with the right vendor for shipping and overnight needs can maximize productivity and operational efficiencies. To make sure you are using the ideal vendor, we will review your current vendor, shipping requirements, technologies, distribution processes and evolving needs.

Mail Distribution

Even with the increasing use of online communication, mail distribution is still a crucial part of keeping in touch with your clients. So you need to ensure that your inbound and outbound mail processes are as error-free as possible.

Our team of experts will review your current mailing processes, internal delivery methods, mail technologies and the entire “chain of custody” of the mail pieces. We will also benchmark all mail-related functions against our proprietary database created and validated by mail distribution studies since 1997.

Once we determine your situation, we will implement a solution, which could include reeingeering your current process, developing an RFP to outsource mail distribution or benchmarking your present mail staff.

Mail Center Security Assessment

Since 9/11, there has been a heightened awareness in mail distribution centers because of the threat of terrorism, and this has resulted in increased security protocols. The mail center still represents the most vulnerable entry portal for a potential terrorist attack. In the years proceeding 9/11, the United States Postal Service (USPS) has responded to over 6,000 potential acts of terrorism with roots traced back to mail distribution.

Our experience in this area is vast—we have written mail distribution security protocols for government agencies and corporate and legal clients.
