UPS Adds Slower Business Mail Service for Lower RateUnited Parcel Service business mail services unit Mail Innovations unveiled an integrated suite of mailing services yesterday that includes a new option to send non-urgent mail at a lower rate in exchange for less speedy delivery.
Called UPS Mail Logic, the service includes mail pickup, transport and processing to the U.S. Postal Service or overseas. For mail in the United States, UPS Mail Logic delivers at First-Class mail speeds plus one day.
Customers also can choose UPS Mail Logic Saver, which delivers mail in an average of six days. Mail sent with UPS Mail Logic Saver qualifies for a lower per-piece rate.
Domestically, UPS Mail Innovations typically handles mail pieces weighing less than 1 pound, including flats, bound printed matter -- including catalogs -- and lightweight products such as CDs or books. Internationally, UPS Mail Innovations handles mail of all weights.
