There can be worthwhile postage discounts for drop-shipping your marketing mail for mailings that are geographically concentrated.
Each week's tip will help you develop direct mail campaigns with built-in savings.
Drop-shipping is the process of bypassing the front end of the postal mail stream and delivering directly to the United States Postal Service® SCF (Sectional Center Facility) destinations. There is a delivery cost, so you should weigh the delivery cost against postage savings to determine which mailings benefit this type of postage submittal process.
A bonus to drop-shipping is expedited delivery times; mail delivered directly to the SCF will typically deliver much faster!
The United States Postal Service® provides discounts for this process. Drop shipments can save up to $0.045 per piece for mail that qualifies!
