Mailing milestone for USPS

It took seven months to hit the 1bn mark, but only four more weeks to hit 3bn. That’s the number of Intelligent Mail Full Service mail pieces processed by USPS since the program’s implementation last May.

The milestone mailing entered the postal distribution network the week of 4 January, and the actual number was confirmed yesterday.

The number of Intelligent Mail Full Service mailers increased to 171, a 60% increase from mid-December. To date, Intelligent Mail Full Service has generated $1bn in revenue.

“The month of December has been one of exceptional participation and performance,” said Tom Day, senior vice president, Intelligent Mail and Address Quality. “The PostalOne! system handled more than twice the previous peak of eDoc postage statements and did so with 98% being processed in 30 minutes or less. Mailers are realising the benefits of Full Service Intelligent Mail, and are doing so in a stable operating environment.”
