UPS Mail Innovations, the business mail services unit of UPS, expanded its reach across the United States into the Northwest with the addition of a mail processing center in Seattle, the company said yesterday.
The facility, the 12th for UPS Mail Innovations, provides business customers an economical alternative for sorting, processing and sending mail within the United States or internationally.
UPS Mail Innovations generally handles business mail pieces of less than a pound, including flats (annual reports or healthcare benefits packets), bound printed matter (catalogs or directories), lightweight products (samples, videos, CDs or books) and international mail of all weights.
UPS Mail Innovations covers pickup, sorting, processing and transporting of certain types of mail directly to the U.S. Postal Service or foreign postal authority nearest the final destination. The postal authorities then complete the final deliveries.
Participating in work-share programs with postal authorities, including the USPS, lets UPS Mail Innovations offer customers lower postal rates with a delivery time of First-Class plus one day.
“Expanding the accessibility of our services is a direct response to the growing needs of our customers in the Northwest region,” said Jerry Kohnke, vice president and general manager of UPS Mail Innovations. “With rising transportation costs and postage increases looming, more businesses are seeking ways to cut costs. We are committed to helping our customers achieve the most effective and efficient mail delivery possible.”
