Our Pitney Bowes Shipping Software Integration Boosts Shipping Efficiency
 
 
Let's talk about the facts. The United States Postal Service (USPS) was founded in 1775. They played a crucial role in the foundation and expansion of our country. Over the last 200 plus years, they have experienced some growing pains, especially related to tracking packages and many competitors have also emerged. Thanks to the Amazon effect and eCommerce boom, those days are over. Now there are tons of shipping options but USPS is back on top for many businesses and people are talking about it. They are the #1 delivery partner for Amazon, eBay, Etsy, PayPal and many other major online shopping companies. 

Through our partnership with Pitney Bowes and Visible Supply Chain Management, we are able to offer an easy and cost-effective alternative to ship your packages. There are a lot of great benefits: 

     ♦  No additional residential or accessorial shipping charges

     ♦  Free pick up with no minimum quantity (24 hours notice)

     ♦  Delivery to all 50 states which means no rural or extended area surcharges

     ♦  Scan based returns– can be used in conjunction with outbound UPS or FedEx shipments

     ♦  Free boxes + APO/FPO shipping

Our partnership with Visible Supply Chain Management; a rate provider with over 25 years of supply chain management experience, provides StarShip customers with discounted Priority and Express Mail rates for domestic and international shipments. Significant cost savings can be found for packages under 20 lbs!   Interested in seeing if you could be saving with USPS? Contact us to get a free shipping analysis:

Pitney Bowes & USPS Automated Postage Verification (APV)

Posted on Fri, Feb 23, 2018 @ 01:38 PM
 

Last year, the U.S. Postal Service implemented Automated Postage Verification, which automatically evaluates dimensions, weight, package types and zones during processing to confirm the correct postage amount. If the calculated postage differs from the postage paid for the shipment, USPS notifies Pitney Bowes of the discrepancy.

On March 3, 2018, Pitney Bowes will begin applying postage payment adjustments for overpayments and underpayments to your pre-paid postage account. We strongly encourage all shipping managers to learn about the root causes of postage adjustments and how to avoid them.

 ENSURING ACCURATE POSTAGE

 


3 Common Postage Errors (and how to avoid them)

  • Weighing items incorrectly - Weigh your item and round up. USPS rounds up to the next pound or ounce.
  • Exceeding weight limit for mail class - For example, First-Class Package service can only be used for packages under 15.999 oz; anything over the weight limit must use Priority Mail.
  • Entering wrong package dimensions - Measure your package and enter the length, width and height into StarShip.

Learn more about USPS Automated Postage Verification along with steps to ensure accurate postage.
