RETURN MAIL PROCESSING DESIGNED TO CUT COSTS WITH LESS MANUAL LABOR
THE HIDDEN COST OF RETURNED MAIL
If you send any mail, you’re probably familiar with the burden of return mail, the mail that doesn’t reach its intended destination due to an error. Mailers in all industries face this challenge, with some mailers having thousands and thousands of return mail pieces undeliverable as addressed (UAA) that need to be reprocessed. But return mail is more than cumbersome. It has a huge cost that businesses and organizations pay each year. According to the USPS, returned mail costs the mailing industry, which the sender has to pay, an estimated $20 billion annually. Aside from paying postage, return mail can also come with fees plus the additional money you pay for manual labor to open and process return mail.
