Last week The U.S. Postal Service (USPS) launched a new program that offers four new delivery solutions that leverage the network improvements, new equipment, new pricing and enhanced operational precision of the USPS. USPS Connect was designed to meet evolving business needs.
The USPS Connect program offers four different options that are designed to help businesses at the local, regional, and national level meet growing consumer demand for affordable deliveries and returns:
USPS Connect Local offers affordable next-day service in all locations, with same-day delivery, Sunday delivery and pickup options. It includes an affordable First-Class Mail option for documents up to 13 ounces, free en-route pickup when their carrier delivers their mail, and free flat-rate bags, boxes and envelopes available via Click-N-Ship. USPS Connect Local is only available select locations.
USPS Connect Regional provides next-day regional entry and delivery. It is available for Parcel Select packages and Parcel Select Lightweight packages. Most packages will be delivered the next day within the specified regions.
USPS Connect National provides delivery solutions for First-Class Package Service, Parcel Select Ground and Retail Ground packages. Businesses of all sizes can use the program to benefit from the Postal Service’s new mail processing equipment and reconfigured network to receive reliable delivery of packages.
USPS Connect Returns is a service for businesses to offer their customers convenient returns, with free en-route pickup by their carrier or drop-off at a nearby Post Office location.
