Neopost USA Urges Shippers to Heed USPS Shipping Deadlines
Neopost USA urges shippers to heed USPS shipping deadlines.
Neopost USA, a mailing, business communications management and shipping solutions expert, advises shippers to take note of the United States Postal Service® 2015 holiday shipping deadlines*. The recently announced dates are intended to help businesses plan their outreach to customers, predict delivery times and increase their customer satisfaction levels.
“There are many unplanned events throughout the year that affect a company’s day-to-day operations; the holiday shipping season doesn’t have to be one of them,” says Vice President, Postal Relations, Vince DeAngelis. “With a little strategic planning, businesses can keep their year-end, holiday-season shipping operations running as smoothly as the rest of the year.”
Neopost USA offers these strategic planning tips to every business that ships during the hyper-intense, final weeks of the calendar year:
- Know when your carrier is going to arrive at your place of business and have your packages ready. With increased package volume during this time, carriers will be on a tight schedule and cannot afford to be delayed.
- Make sure you utilize proper shipping packaging. There is more opportunity for damage when package processing operations are at their highest capacity.
- Don’t ship air and empty space. Use DIM (dimensional weight pricing) for shipping and packaging. Knowing the specific dimensions of your contents allows you to choose the proper packaging. A DIM calculator is a valuable resource. (Go to http://www.dimweightresources.com/.)
- Shop for the best price and service for letters and packages during the holiday shipping season. The USPS offers great value, provides customers with exceptional visibility and offers six-day-a-week delivery; seven-day-a-week delivery in some cases.
“Adhering to the USPS year-end shipping dates is one way businesses can increase customer satisfaction, keep their shipping operations running smoothly and make this a profitable holiday season,” DeAngelis says.
