Mail & Parcel Sorting and Distribution

// RISING COSTS, RISING VOLUMES

 

Despite the overall decline in volume for letters and envelopes, the USPS processed and delivered an average of 429.9 million pieces of mail each day. Mail continues to be a powerful tool used by businesses, whether for invoices, bills, remittance, loans, insurance, applications, and customer service, which means physical mail is going to be around for a long time. With the rapid growth of ecommerce, the volume of parcels is projected to grow to 262 billion by 2026 at a compound annual growth rate of 14.8%. However, the costs of postage and mail handling are constantly on the rise. Labor shortages and low resources resulting from supply chain disruptions continue to put pressure on businesses and their operations everywhere.

// SLOW TURNAROUND AND LABOR-INTENSIVE

 

Labor shortages, overwhelmed workers, budget constraints, aging systems, and thousands of mail pieces per day. Does this sound familiar?

Processing mail by hand is time-consuming and labor-intensive, typically requiring dozens of employees at different workstations batching, opening, or sorting mail for long hours each day. The overwhelming amount of mail creates bottlenecks that hold up downstream processes, possibly resulting in missed deadlines. Manually opening mail exposes sensitive information to too many people, posing risk for lost or mishandled sensitive information. Using razor blades or letter openers can damage envelopes and their contents, rendering documents invalid or requiring repair.

With mail shifting from letters to parcels, operations need to be flexible. Standard letter sorting equipment can’t accommodate parcels, requiring more mail to be sorted and delivered by hand. With thousands, or even hundreds of thousands, of mail pieces coming in every day by the truckload, it seems impossible to process mail with labor alone, especially if you can’t hire or train additional staff.
